12 Reasons to Run in the Morning, According to Reddit

I love listening to the dawn chorus (of bird song), the low traffic, chance encounters with crepuscular wildlife (saw a martin last week), and the quiet. One thing I do not like is being the first on the trail, because I run into dozens of spider webs each morning! I suppose it's a fair price to pay for all the good stuff.

Birds love the morning, and animals of many kinds are more active when people aren’t around. I often see deer on morning runs, for example. (There’s a fix for the spiderweb problem, by the way: pick up a stick, and when you get to a spot where the trees are particularly close together, run with the stick held in front of you like an Olympic torch.)
