The perks of a morning run

I'm a morning runner. And I like it.

In fact I'ld hate to have to run later on in the day.

But what exactly are the perks of a morning run?

  • You can bask in the glow of knowing you've run áll day!
  • After your run, your body will continue on burning calories. Even if you're sitting down. It just works that way!
  • It's one less thing to do on your to-do-list. So you can enjoy crossing something off.
  • By running in the morning you're making sure you get your run in. That way you're less vulnerable to what your kids throw at you.

Don't you believe me when I say morning runs are the best?

Then let this song convince you:



The drawbacks of morning runs

To be fair, I'm also going to list the drawbacks of morning runs. The way I see it, most drawbacks of morning runs have to do with safety.

  • People driving their car may still be a bit sleepy. And therefore less alert.
  • During Fall and Winter morning runs can be quite dark.
  • If your mornings are busy, running can feel like too much. One more thing you have to squeeze in.

Are you a morning runner? Or more of an afternoon/evening runner?

My 5 favorite running songs

Music helps me run!

It keeps me going. It motivates me, and stimulates me. Sometimes I take a walking break. But then a certain song comes along, and I can't hélp but break into a trot!

This Friday Five's theme is Favorite Fitness Tunes.

So here are mine!

Is this the way to Amarillo? (Tony Christie)

It's hard to keep still while listening to this song? And I love the question! Is this the way?



You sexy thing, you! (Hot Chocolate)


Whenever I hear this song, I pull back my shoulders, and I can't help but gently sway my hips! I like to imagine they're talking to me!



I was born to run, Emmylou Harris


I always feel like a bit of a fraud when I listen to this song. Because I'm not a fast runner. And I don't look like I was born to run. But I still like to run to this song!

Sometimes the answer is no, Brad Paisley


Now this song does nothing for my speed. But I just love the story!


Love done gone, Billy Currington


This one does make me run faster! And again, I love the story it tells.
