I totally agree that a lot of the motivational/life coach stuff is bullshit. I do get up at 5am to run, however, before I take my son to school and go to work, because there is no possible way for it to fit in the rest of the day. Even if I have to run in the dark (thanks Daylight Savings Time.). Because it’s good for my head and gets it out of the way.
But that’s me.
