People think waking up at the crack of dawn to run at 6am on the weekends is crazy. To runners, triathletes and endurance athletes, it’s really not. It’s normal to us. In a conversation with a few runners, I began to explain that my long runs at 6am is like going to the club in college. Here is why…
You Lay Out Your Clothes Before
You Pre-party Before You Head Out the Door
Your Shoe Game Is a Must!
You Meet Your “Crew” at a Certain Time and Place
Crowd Control or a Sold Out Event Is Expected… and Normal
Glow Sticks, Foam, Costumes…
Need I Say Any More?
The Earlier You Go the Less You Have to Pay
Spandex is Acceptable
So Are Revealing, Tight Garments
Everyone is Drinking
You Learn New Techniques and Footwork
Your Favorite Tunes are Playing
Everyone Leaves Sweaty
Everyone Eats Breakfast At the “Post Hangout Spot”
