How I Annoy Adam

Do you want to know how high the humidity was yesterday during my run? 82%! That’s just unfair.


I was supposed to do bridge repeats yesterday but I was insanely tired and decided to move the repeats to today. I have a great excuse: I am not a morning person and I had to get up at 5am!


5am is actually my new wakeup time for the foreseeable future so I need to get used to it. What time should I start going to bed to make this feel okay? Like, 5pm?

Last night was already day 9 of my 30 day run streak. Honestly, if I wasn’t in the middle of a streak I would have taken a nap after work. This streak is really making me a better person.

Now for a totally unrelated topic :). Have you seen those posts going around on Facebook where parents ask their kids to answer questions about them?

One of my friends has a 3 year old and some of her answers were so hilarious. My friend asked, “how do I annoy you” and her daughter responded with “Pretty. I’ll give you a flower and a ring.”  I imagine my friend’s husband must call her pretty and give her flowers (and rings?!) every time he annoys her and their daughter has noticed LOL!

Of course all of Cecil’s answers to the questions are “meow,” so I decided to do the questions with Adam instead.

Interviewed: Adam, age 32.
What is something I say a lot? “I love you”
What makes me happy? The cat.
What makes me sad? Not being near the cat. Animals dying.
What is my favorite thing to do? Pet the cat.
How do I annoy you? You freestyle it. Kidding, you don’t annoy me.
What is my favorite TV show? I love Lucy. Mindy.
If I could go anywhere where would it be? Home.
Do you think you could live without me? No. What kind of messed up question is that? Who would say yes? Only people who aren’t in love!

Thanks to Megan for giving me the idea to do it with Adam!

What time do you get up in the morning?
What is your current favorite tv show?!

    I noticed you commented on my blog so early yesterday! You know I am a morning person and wake up naturally by 5 but I am usually in bed by 9. So that is my recommendation! Good luck with the early wake ups!

    Hahaha he is a smart man! Why do you have to get up at 5am now???

    I am such a morning person and wake up by 4 AM. Yes, that means I fall asleep at 8 PM. I always tell Rick “sorry you married a senior citizen, babe”. At least we are only shifted by like 2 hours. Life would be rough if he was a major night owl. We would never see each other!! I am super boring because here is what I watch on TV: sports (number one pick), the news and any show by Anthony Bourdain. Oh, I guess I do indulge in RHONY when it’s on–gotta get my fill of drama queens with nothing better to do but to fight with each other (makes me laugh: who gets in fights with their friends after the age of like 12?!?) Keep it up on your run streak!

    I’m up at 5am everyday and in order to not be a zombie we typically go to bed at 9pm lol. I feel like such a grown up when I tell people my bed time… they usually respond with something like ‘okay grandma’.

    “You freestyle it”….Best…Answer…Ever….lol.

    Uhg I’m in a funk right now, I haven’t ran in the morning all week. Kids go back to school next week so i hope i can get back in my normal schedule. During training I was waking up at 300am to be out the door by 330am. Gotta sacrifice lol.

    That is a pretty warped last question! I am back to my 5:30am wake up call now that vacation time is over. BUT, my son wants me to come in and cuddle (ie, wake him up) 10 mins earlier now (6:10 vs 6:20), so that’s one whole mile less that I can run before the kids wake up! Time to push back my wake up time maybe? For 5:30 wake up I need to get to bed by 10:30 or my day just won’t be going well due to lack of sleep!
    5am is tough. I hope you get in your groove soon! What’s the reason for the move? New work time/drive time?

    I love that he knows VERY Well, that the cat makes you happy!!

    why do you have to go to bed at 5 am? Back in the day… many years ago, when I had to be up at 5 am, I used to go to bed at 9:30, never later, or I wouldn’t get up.

    I love to wake up at 6 am to go for my run! But on the days I don’t run in the morning, I’ll wake up at 7:30 am. I don’t know, I just can’t go to bed early sometimes.

    And I’m such a boring person that doesn’t watch TV or Netflix, so I don’t have a favorite TV show at the moment. I do like to read though and watch YouTube though.

    The weather is KILLING ME. Winter is such a joke. Blah.

    Why are you getting up at 5am these days?? New work schedule?

    Haha freestyle it? Does that mean you can bust a rhyme? (seriously I am out of touch sometimes, when I first heard that word in terms of rapping, I thought the person was talking about swimming!)
