Since Emma has become a licensed RN and started working full time early shifts I've made an effort to get up early and get a run in before going to work. It's not easy for me, and the runs are a little on the slow side but I think I could get used to it. It is nice being able to see the sun rise over Casco Bay.
This morning I did a loop from home to the Western Prom, down to Commercial Street for it's entire length to the East End Beach, up to the Eastern Prom and then back home along Congress Street. There was a lot of ice on the roads and sidewalks but my screw shoes kept me upright.
