The alarm goes off. My blurry eyes look around the dark room. I wish I could go back to sleep. I don't go back to sleep. Shoes are hiding. Where are my shoes? I wish I could go back to sleep.

    Exercise is a constant struggle for me. I almost always enjoy it once I get started, but taking those first steps seems almost impossible many days. I'm glad you have a friend to help hold you accountable and keep you going.
