We had a great run this morning. The world seems so fresh and clean at 6am. We are luck that we work close to home; we have a good hour to ourselves to enjoy the run and the morning together.
Most people are just coming to the surface of their sleep at that time or climbing into their cars for the morning commute when we cruse by. This morning we ran into another early morning person and had a great conversation about the residential growth that is happening around our area. You just never know what you will find or who you will run into when you are out early, I mean how often do you run by a turtle laying eggs on your evening run?
There certainly are some benefits to running early. The best one for us is that we get our run in and out of the way before our day gets started. Our evenings are full of other obligations. If we leave our run until after work chances are we won’t fit into the day. Running in the morning sets us up for the day. We feel great physically and mentally and that puts us into a great mood for rest of the day.
