It's not so bad, getting up before the rooster's even gone to bed. Cycling to the gym while sunrise is but a distant promise on the horizon. Getting your stomach muscles annihilated before breakfast. And then, when you're done, exiting the gym to find that, while you were indoors building your core strength, the earth has turn another notch, the sun has come up, the air is crisp, and the autumn leaves you thought were starting to turn grey are still all shades of orange in the warm morning light.
And the day has just begun.
