When It's Coolest To Run
I hear people contemplate when it's the coolest time of day to run fairly often.
This post from Christine Luff at www.about.com spells things out pretty well. Morning is the best because the pavement and sidewalks aren't radiating the heat of the day. While darkness can make people feel less than comfortable, running just after sunrise is still a cool time of day to run.
Personally, I find the early morning hours the best time to run. There's less traffic, it's quiet and cool. Plus, you have the benefit of feeling a sense of accomplishment getting your morning run behind you early in the day.
