The hardest part for me is getting out the door. I find making it a habit often helps a bunch. "My alarm clock is going off... it must be time to put shoes on and run."

One guy in OUCCC would sleep in running kit to minimize the activation barrier when hungover.

Agreed, getting out the door is hardest for me. Knowing that there will be people waiting on me is a big motivator. Maybe try laying out the hiking/biking/running clothing the night before? I find it's a lot easier to do a morning workout if I've already packed up everything I need for work. Also, I find it easier if I have to go somewhere anyway, then I'm already out the door, and can do the workout on the way or something. (i.e. November Project on the way to work - people, and already have to go to work anyway, may as well make it worthwhile and do something silly first)

Yes, laying everything out makes a big difference to me too. Then it's habit and not morning-decision-making that gets me out the door in running kit.

Yeah - if it's a morning decision, then there isn't much of a question what I will decide :)
