Hey, dude, I was on the track before sunrise this morning... ten minutes before sunrise. But, yes, I surely don't understand rising at 4:45 for anything other than fishing or watching World Cup soccer.

Carry on.

I bet you got to spend some quality time with that beautiful, practically full moon this morning. Sounds like an incredible run this morning.
