Anti-Early Runner and Finger Shoes
Yesterday, I decided to wake up at 5:45 am so I could jog with Lance. He spent almost as many hours as hubby and I in the car during our trip to Georgia last weekend (visited sister and went to a wedding). He is such a good car riding dog, but he didn't get much exercise.

The pain and agony of waking up wasn't as bad as I anticipated, but I have no intention of returning to an early morning routine. I felt so sluggish during the day, even after a nice Starbucks drink. I prefer the punishment of heat to the punishment of waking up early.
My next step for running is to buy some finger shoes. The Saucony shoes that I love have been discontinued, and I've almost worn out my last pair. I'm sad because they've been great for me. I figure I'll try the finger shoes because I've heard really good things from people who use them. I'd like to read Born To Run because the book apparently got everyone promoting barefoot/minimalist shoe running. From what I understand, you have to start slow and do really really really short distances when you start with finger shoes. I'm looking forward to that process.
