Several years ago, when I was living by myself in Manhattan (side note: Some of the best years of my life! Young women, please make sure you spend some time living by yourself. It's so important to get to know yourself!), I was taking a self-improvement course.
And one of the things I had done during this class was promise everyone in the class that I would get up every morning at 6:00 a.m. and go running in central park. Yep, I did that.
