The house is briefly quiet, and the sun has yet to shine, and here I am with one eye opened, rolling out of bed. I’ve become an early bird, but not by no will power or volition of my own doing! I was not born with that early morning gift, and nope, it wasn’t ingrained in me early on – all of this early bird mornings way of life happened almost 12 years ago when I had my first child. I’m a parent by choice, and an early bird by default of parental obligation. And so, I have had to fight many mornings and wrestle with my natural instincts of burying my head in my pillow and sleeping like a “teenager”, braving these early bird mornings like a pro (sort of).
Our family schedule is bonkers, and I do mean whoa Nelly kind of bonkers, but it’s who we are. Sometimes we get it right and other times this momma might need that extra bit of caffeine to nail it, but overall we enjoy each and every day.
One of my early bird rituals includes the unsuspecting visit to my local RaceTrac! The crew at my RaceTrac are amazing, greeting me with a smile and are always willing to go out of their way to help me ease into my mornings! You can find so many tasty options from gorgeous breakfast sandwiches, yogurts with granola, donuts, as well as apples and oranges that are available just in case you forgot to grab any fruit from home. My favorite way to perk up these half-massed eyes in the mornings are with a freshly made orange and banana smoothie followed by a chaser of high caffeinated coffee.
Whether or not you’re an early bird or regardless of which side of the bed you woke up, RaceTrac has whatever you need to start your mornings off right! They offer a full selection of food and beverages to help get you going any day of the week.
