Yep, here we are – that time of the year again. The weekend that we “spring” forward with our clocks. I HATE it. Now, I don’t mind losing the hour of sleep . You can adapt to that – I have a friend that is a sleep specialist and she can tell you how to get used to it during the week before.
What I hate about this weekend is the mornings. I am an early morning runner. I love running through my neighborhood when most of my neighbors are still in bed. I love the stillness and the peacefulness. And, I do even like the darkness on those mornings when the moonlight is bright from the full moon.
However, I do love it when it starts to get light when I’m out there. My favorite is heading out just before dawn when it’s still a little dark – but daylight is breaking.
Right now is that perfect time.
Until this weekend.
Starting Sunday morning it will be pitch black again when I head out – and most of the time when I get done. So, I have to be patient (again) for a few more weeks until my perfect mornings are back.
Now, I have many running friends who are out there all the time when it’s dark. They run around 3 or 4 in the morning every day because of their work. And, I apologize to them for being a whiner. But, these are my thoughts and feelings.
The one good thing that I can say about Daylight Saving Time? It means that warmer weather is on the way. And that makes me VERY happy!
