4:45 AM you ask? WHY you ask??? By 5:15 I’ll be awake enough to run. An hour on the pavement will bring me back home at 6:15, which gives me just enough time to shower, eat breakfast, make lunch, post on the website, get dressed, and make it to shul by 6:45.
Truth is, I DID get up at 4:45 today (after going to sleep at 2:00) but felt the first hints of a cold coming on. So I went back to bed until 6:30. 4.5 hours of sleep. Sometimes you just have to spoil yourself.
