    I normally run at night but been thinking about switching to morning (7 am - 8 am) to free up my evenings.

    I prefer evening runs, will occasionally run in the middle of the day and rarely will I run in the morning. The hellacious afternoon and evening thunderstorms here have
    forced me to reconsider scheduling my runs earlier in the day.

    Mornings work the best for me. I have all my energy.

    I made the mistake of running down by the river one late evening when a crazy looking guy walked out of the woods holding a frying pan and just gave a raspy "Hi," and kept walking. Mid-afternoon or morning are good times.

    I prefer mid-afternoon. But my work schedule forces me to run at night.

    It varies. In the Summer, scheduled hard runs, bright and early, easy runs early to late evening. In the Winter, if I can get in a midday run, that's my preference.

    I'm a morning runner. Get up and hit it between 6 and 7 a.m. Great way to start the day...who needs coffee?!!

    I run at night because I'm to lazy to wakeup before work and go for a run....eventually I'll get myself to do it.

    Always early in the morning. I hate running in heat and there is the potential of too many things disrupting my day to schedule an evening run.

    Winter time, I wait until about 11 a.m. to take advantage of some midday warmth. It is an EFFORT to drag my ass outside as the icicles form on my lashes. Stay away from Edmonton.icon_lol.gif

    I have run all times,mornings(even four am. in the summer),afternoons, evenings,nights(gone midnight sometimes),but evenings seem to suit me the best,usually the two hours before sunset.It seems much easier and lighter then.
    I have read that later in the day is better as your body`s warmer/more flexible than earlier.

    Morning runs get my blood pumping, and I only need to take one shower.

    Mid-day shirtless runs satisfies my exhibitionist streak.

    Evening runs not so much because of all the exhaust in the air.

    Midnight runs because I do 'em nekkid!

    I have tried running at different times of the day for extended periods of time, and I've found that--as a student--running between 3 and 5 pm, right after I finish classes, is best for me. I'm usually pretty mentally drained and physically restless after a whole morning/afternoon of class, and running right after class helps me recover mentally and physically. By the time I get out of the shower, I'm tired and ready to grab food, do work, and remain productive for the remainder of the day.

    I run the morning after drinking cheap beer, but Pepto Bismol generally fixes that right up.

    weekday runs are at night, usually 7 or 8 pm, but I do my long runs on Saturday morning at 5:30--it sucks, but at least its over early and before there is too much traffic.

    I prefer to run morning during week-ends, I'm planning to do it every day but it seems I haven't started that yet. sometimes its hard to wake up early.

    on weekends I like to start my day by doing it in the morning, usually during the weekday I run after i get back from work or after the gym in the evening.

    Love, love, love running at night. Just something about it is electric.

    When I was in college and ran some 5k's, it nearly killed me to wake up at the crack of dawn, figure out what (if anything) to eat and then convince my body that it had to run at that hour. icon_smile.gif

    I run at 4:30AM before I have to start getting ready for work which takes me an hour. I run again at 10:30PM before bed or I may watch TV a bit. I practically live at work but I have tons of energy. I get to the gym as well in the afternoons after my regular schedule before I have to return at night. I have no complaints about the schedule and the neighborhood and town I live in is pretty safe. No worries. Its good that work, the gym, and my home is 2 miles apart from eachother. It works!

    Please, ellaborate on that icon_cool.gif !

    Since here we are in summer-spring pretty much year round, I prefer running at 6:00 am to avoid the heat. Plus, I run in a large park that should be pretty scary and lonely at night.
