Day 1 I begin my day like almost every other office worker. I have a routine that I have already mastered because I have been doing it for the past three years. I wake up and get out of bed. I try to run when I can but most of the time I just exercise at home. I drink a cup of coffee and race through my breakfast. I brush my teeth while the shower is heating up.
