Lacing up and heading out in the pre-dawn hours can be an opportune time to knock out some miles, especially in the summer months. Even if the humidity is already heavy, with the sun low in the morning sky, the summer heat will usually be at its lowest for the day.
What's to love about the early morning runs? Let me elaborate...
You can hear the music of nature. If you're up and out the door early enough, you may still hear the crickets chirping and some of the birds will be singing.
Pure beauty is all around you. Have you ever seen a sunrise, from start to finish? The sky turns all kinds of radiant colors as the sun slowly emerges above the horizon.
Ease of mind. By getting your run (or any workout) done early in the day, you will not have to worry about getting it done later.
Satisfaction for a job well done. There's a definite feeling of accomplishment in knowing you've finished a workout before most of the world has even woken up.
.When do you prefer to run (or workout)? Or can you make any time of day (or night) work?
