The Early Bird

There is an old cliche - the early bird catches the worm and you know - when it comes to working out, that's me.  See I am an early riser and someone who has the most of her energy in the morning hours vs. the afternoon or evening timeframe.  I wake up bursting...and ready to do something.  That is why an early morning run is the best for ...
