Running for Perspective

You may have seen last week, if you read, that I wrote about shedding my imposter syndrome by entering a writing contest. If not you can find that post here. I decided that I like posting on Medium, and I plan on continuing to do so.

This week, I wanted to connect you to my post on medium about my insecurities running at 4:30 in the morning. I touch on the timing in my post Running Against…Zombies? but I don’t go into detail about how those runs impact how I view the world around me. It doesn’t fit into the previous post, but it is worth discussing.

You can find the essay on Medium, linked here. In this piece I discuss how I started running at 4:30 and why. I also talk about what it’s like to run that early in the morning, and how it’s shifted my perspective on my surroundings, especially when I’m alone.

  1. Thanks for sharing your story with us! I like how you’ve chosen to continue setting your alarm at 4:15, and running despite the dangers.

    Honestly though, I feel that there’s magic in waking up early. “But you can still get 16 waking hours if you wake up at noon” used to be my argument, but I just am in a better mindset when waking up before the sunrise.

    Anyway, thanks for this post!
