I took this picture this morning on my way in for morning
workout. Notice the time; I dont have to be at work until
9:30, and I was still 15 minutes late.

But damn it feels good!!

You call that early?ColnagoFE

I'd love to sleep in like that and work out in the morning. As it is, I get up at 5am just to get to work by 7. If I wanted to work out in the morning I'd need to be up at 4 and that's just too darn early though I do get a noon workout in at the company gym and then after work again. Doesn't leave much time at home though as I'm rarely back home before 7:30pm. Man I miss daily bike commuting from my previous job, but such is the life of a corporate wage whore with bills to pay.

I get up at 4:30 so I can have coffee & hang awhile with my baby daughter before she leaves for grandma's.
At 5:45 Im out the door for a quick 12 mile around this crater. It is so beautiful at that hour.All purple & orange sky. Then home by 6:30 quick shower....zoom 30 miles downhill quick stop for expresso at a drive thru wagon & on to work. I usually get here right before 8am.....whew

Yeah she just turned 3.
But she also goes to bed at 6:30-7:00 ;-)
Sometimes she will sleep till 5am though. I know it seems nuts to me too. My wife is a real mama's girl & like to go & visit with her mom everyday before her mom leaves for work. Her mom who is totally charmed by my daughter loves it too.
What a life eh ;-)
OMG, you're sleeping half the day away!...asphalt assault

Kidding of course. I work a 4am til noon and I'm out of the house at 3:15...no way I'm doing a middle of the night workout:/

The up side is that I'm home at 12:45 in the afternoon. I'm blessed with more time to ride, workout...whatever, then anyone I know. I'l be doing a 12 hour shift today and won't be home til 6pm...I'l still get in a ride though!

I start work at 5 am. I have a half hour for lunch, which usually is a 15 minute run and a quick shower. But I'm home by
2:30 everyday. Still time to get a good long ride in if everyone leaves me alone. It's funny how, when people find out
how early you get home, they expect you to do their running around! I finally had to just say no. VERY tough to do.

I NEVER slept! I rode my 60 pound Schwinn 100 miles to my job in Antarctica cleaning fish through killer ice storms daily! Rogue eskimos tried to shoot me with harpoons along the way.......

That remindse me of the Python skit where members' stories of childhood hardships become increasingly ridiculous, including claims of 11 or so children living in a rolled up newspaper at the bottom of a lake or some such nonsense.
