5 a.m.

One of these days I will be able to get up at 5 a.m. and be working out before 5:30 a.m. This morning, Mr. Neon emerged from the bedroom and found me fiddling with my bike shoes.

Mr. Neon: How was your bike?
Me: Uh…I haven’t done it yet.
Mr. Neon: I thought you were getting up at 5 a.m.
Me: I woke up at 5, but I didn’t get out of bed until 5:15. I had to load the coffee pot, poop, and get dressed.
Mr. Neon: Wake me back up when you’re done.

Summer training….


I’m too lazy to clean the pot out and load it the night before, so I just do it in the morning. Nothing beats the smell of coffee wafting through the house at the end of my workout. It definitely encourages me to finish the cool down and get to the coffee! We didn’t use to have an automatic coffee pot. What were we thinking?!


This other small appliance is my friend today. The A/C is out at work. Blah. Parts of the building are at 80. The thermostat closest to me is reading 79.0. It’s at least 3 degrees cooler in our office. Hopefully they can get it fixed soon. It’s going to get uncomfortable in here fast. My car said it was 99 when I left to go get some lunch at noon. Darn Kansas!

I’m getting a massage after work tonight. I’m pretty excited. Mr. Neon has been going to this guy once a month for nearly a year now. He won a year’s worth of massages…lucky dog. Well now, we are sponsored by him! Elite Fitness Massage is awesome. It’s hard for me to take time out of my schedule to get a massage, but I need to stop feeling guilty and make the time. Massages aid recovery so much and with my training starting back up, I need to focus on recovery, as well as continuing to rehab my hip. If you live in the Wichita area, you definitely need to check Nate out. You can schedule online, which is crazy convenient if you barely have time to text let alone make phone calls like me. I put a link to his website over on the right hand side. And don’t forget to tell him that Neon Runner Girl sent you!

Stay neon!!
