Running at 8 am on a Monday morning is nothing like running at 4:30 am on a weekday. The world is a busy place by 8 am. Granted, it's far more interesting, and there's a lot more light. I prefer the lonely 4:30 run; far less threat of being hit by a truck, for one thing. Ah well, all week should be interesting since I do not intend to run at 4:30 am while I'm on vacation. Vacation is work time, so off to put up Christmas lights and all that.
