Our Saturday's of sleeping in, snuggled warm under a mountain of covers, and waking to a late breakfast are over. The mornings where the scent of pancakes and coffee linger up the stairs are behind us.
Soccer season is here and we rise early on these Saturdays. Those 8:30 games make our weekends feel like school days. Friday nights we head to bed a little bit earlier so we are ready to run as morning arrives. We run around our house hoping we will not be late. We run from our car to the field and then we run run run during the game. And when the game is over we run to the next field for another game.
I'm tired of running.
I'm ready to sit.
I ran three miles tonight. I feel good.
But now I'm ready to lay in bed with a good book. Or maybe even a movie.
