It's time, I realized, to get back to morning running.
I considered this morning to be a test run, since my Saturday miles are usually morning ones anyway (albeit later in the morning, earlier in the spring). I had forgotten how still the neighborhoods are in the early morning, save for a few people out walking their dogs. An hour or two later, the playgrounds and garage sales and neighborhood baseball games and lawnmowers were in motion. But during my run, the city was quiet.
And, of course, the morning clouds:
By the time I got home, the clouds had burned off completely. The sky changes so fast in the early daylight.
