5:30 AM Is Early

Especially when you might have had an extra glass of wine the night before.
And even more so when you have a nice new bed that you want to take full advantage of enjoying.

But no, there was no rain, it was 65 degrees - basically no excuse (the two listed above were weak) to not get out of bed and go biking. So I did. And again, it is actually pretty nice to get moving that early. Mary Elizabeth and I biked a few laps around Hains Point and even though I was a bit too tired for conversation, it is always nice to have someone there.

I may never be a morning person, but watching the sunrise in DC while on a ride, it's a pretty good way to start the day.

"I was a bit too tired for conversation" is her polite way of saying "I left her in the dust."

Good for you! I agree it's tough to get up in the AMs to ride now that it's not as light as early as it used to be plus it's getting a little cooler. A year ago I used to work all the time and as I would drive along GW Pkwy and see runners/bikers on Mt.Vernon trail I would think to myself "that should be me out there too - not going to work". So when I changed jobs and did my first AM ride at HP and saw the sunrise I thought 'now THIS is how I should be seeing it - not in the rearview mirror of my car on my way to work'. I'm so grateful now.
