Motivation for your miles.


No more sleeping in!

How many morning runs have I missed because I didn’t get up?  Counting this morning….Too many to count!  Let’s blame it on the snooze button.

Somehow I think this would work…

DIY alarm clock will shred your money if you don’t wake up on time

I need one!

I need one!

From the website Digital Trends “There are a slew of alarm clocks out there designed to get you up and out of  bed in a reasonable manner. Ones that’ll deliver  electric shocks. Ones that’ll run away from you. But nothing, we say, nothing beats the  cold hard incentive like threatening your wealth. Ladies and gents, we present  to you this DIY alarm clock that’ll start shredding your dollar bills if you  don’t wake the heck up.

Desperate times call for desperate measure, and Rich Olson of found the wackiest solution.  The home-modded USB alarm clock looks and sounds kind of like a ticking time  bomb. When the set time comes, the clock will start beeping loudly. If you don’t  get up to dismantle the alarm in time, say goodbye to your precious dollar bill  as it starts going down the shredder. Oh, and you’ve got just 10 seconds to do  it.

Olson recommends that if you’re really bad at getting up, stick larger  monetary values in there to better motivate yourself to get out of bed. After a  while, you’re bound to either wake up in time or go broke. If you plan on  tinkering with a SparkFun  ClockIt device to make your own ticking money bomb, just remember that  depending on where you’re based, purposely destroying money may be illegal in  your country.”

Question:  Should I go to bed earlier?(which I don’t want to do).   Is it simply a decision that I have to purpose to make to GET UP!  or should I just decide to be an evening runner?

What do you think?
