I had grown so accustomed to running in the afternoon that I forgot the solitude of a morning run at 0530. Nobody out on the road. No exhaust fumes. No cigarette smoke from people hanging out at bars, or blowing it out of their car window as you run by.
Just quiet. It was rather nice.
Granted, most days I need the run in the afternoon, just to burn off all the stored up energy from not choking the living shit out of certain people in my office. But still, it was a nice run this morning.
