Hello Monday!

My Quote of the Day: A Green Monster and a good morning run really start the day on the right note.

Sometimes things just fall apart at the house, don't they?  I am trying to solve the mystery as to why the AC just won't cool my bedroom while the other parts of the house are pretty cool. There are different units so, something must be up with this unit that cools my bedroom and the bedroom next to mine.
What happens when Christina sleeps in a warm room? She gets a headache. About 3 a.m. or so, I gave up feeling hot and stuffy and went and slept on the couch. Ahhhhh .....  much cooler.  And about 6 a.m., I just can't sleep anymore because the head was hurting, so I went for a run.

It was quite a good run despite the headache. Even though it felt like a little loose nut or rock bopping around and up and down my head, I actually had a decent run. I finished 3 miles in 32:53 minutes, drove home, stretched in the shower and made myself a Green Monster for the drive to work.

So, this is week 3 of the half-marathon training. Got my 3 done today, and I am left with a 5-miler, 3-miler and an 8-miler for this week. I will reintroduce some hills when I do my 3-miler later this week, so I am hoping the shins will cooperate. 

What starts your day on a right note? Is there a drink, a song, or a certain someone? Do share.
