This week’s Question: What’s your favorite time of day to run and why?
When I started running, I was an after-work runner. A new job/work chedule demanded I become a morning runner, and that was a tough transition. Once I got used to getting up early to run, I came to love quiet, peaceful mornings and the feeling that early-morning accomplishment gave me all day.
Now, I find myself back in a spot where I’m doing a lot of after-work running and, to be honest, I spend half the day dreading the fact that I need to run at the end of a long workday. I much prefer mornings, but they just haven’t been working out for me.
Here’s what other area runners had to say:
Between 7-9am — Kristen Gehrlein
I have to agree with Kristen. — Jodi Herman
5:30 am – 8:00 am — Sara Mead
The break of dawn at Asbury Woods. Closest to heaven that I will ever get. — Dennis Albrewczynski
I love to run around 9AM, right after I get my kids off to school. It really feels like “me” time. Then I’m ready to go to work or tackle any other challenges the day brings. — Sandie Sweet
Early morning between 6 and 8 a.m. — Jennifer Bach
6-8 am — Teresa Wigham
6:00 am, on a kind of empty stomach. If I have too much food in me, like in the evening, I get hives. I mean it! — Eloise Hawking
Just before bed. I know, it’s weird, right? — Theresa Konzel
1:30 AM, night-time trail runs with the creepy crawlers. — Pat Krott
Evening is my first choice and lunchtime if I can’t make evening. — Sheryl Barner
Anytime if asked by a friend, but not working hrs, and not if she brings her boyfriend:-P — Tom Twohig
5-6 AM — Suzanne Carstater
