Jet Lag Rant

China is exactly 12 hours ahead of the Eastern Time Zone.

So when I woke up at 5 a.m. this morning, it was 5 p.m. in China.

How does that make sense as a time to wake up? I mean, I understand going to and from Europe, where 3 a.m. = 9 a.m. and that would be a normal time for the body to wake up. But 5 p.m.? And why does this start four days AFTER I get home?

The good news is that by the time my alarm was set to go off, I'd already gotten in a good workout. (Yeah... I don't recommend scheduling your first 5k the week after you finish a break where you don't run for two weeks...) The bad news is that I'll be about ready to crash by the time my first class starts.

*end rant*

Also, *end China posts*
