Throwback Thursday: Valentine's Day Edition

It's Throwback Thursday! This is a weekly post where I dig into the archives of Running for Dummies vast history (not really, just from last year) and share an old post that you may have missed.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Since it is Valentine's Day, I thought I would use the opportunity to share throwback pictures of me and hubby. Who would have thought these little cuties from opposites coasts would end up together for 15 years and counting? Hubby will probably kill me for sharing (shh, don't tell him.)

Happy Valentine's Day from little Running for Dummies and little hubby.

OK, enough bragging about how cute I was (until next week, of course.) On to my Throwback Thursday post.

This week's Throwback Thursday is my most popular post ever, "A Dummies Guide to Waking up Early to Work Out," originally posted on June 23, 2012. This single post has more page views than the next nine most popular posts combined.  Why do I think it is so popular? I think a lot of people struggle with getting up in the morning to work out. It can be hard to adjust to an early morning routine, but when you do, it is totally worth it. Click through to read some suggestions for making it a little bit easier to transition into a morning person.

I need to confess to you that I need to take my own advice regarding this one. I haven't been getting up early to do my work outs in the morning. If you're interested in morning work outs, let's recommit and do this together!  I really feel best when I get my work outs done early.

What time is your alarm set for tomorrow?

Keep Running,

  1. I am a misfit
    no alarm
    up and ready and GOING AT 4.
    that said :) dont invite me to go clubbing at night...

  2. Ugh I am so not a morning wake up early person bed feels nice and I like the snooze button. But as busy as I am I NEED to get up early to get them done.

  3. Alarm set for 4:15a...good thing I can work out at home because if I had to drive to a gym, I'm sure it wouldn't happen. After a 12 hour shift in the ER its even harder to get a good workout in!!

  4. Since my daughter doesn't wake up till 7:30 or 8, it's very hard to get up out of bed before she does! I know I'm lucky enough to have her sleep that late and I want to take advantage of it while I can! lol But in saying that, she has started to hate the jogging stroller, so I NEED to start making myself get up earlier....I just don't want to! haha :)
