Underachiever Exerciser

I got up at 5:15 this morning to run with a friend.  We are meeting an hour earlier than our Miles That Matter group since our daughters have a mutual practice at 10:30.  My friend is training for a marathon this spring.  She optimistically and erroneously thinks I'm running seven miles with her.  I'm going as moral suppport.
I am not sure why I never have a "Ooooh! I cannot wait to exercise!" attitude.  I almost always dread the first step of a run.  I'm sure this is mental.  I wonder if I am the only underachiever exerciser around?  I guess if I truly despised exercise, I wouldn't be up fueling my body before the sun comes up.  Let's see how far my body (which hasn't run in over a week) will allow me to go.
