Pre-Dawn Running in Baltimore

Oh yeah, another running post. It is what it is… and it’s another running post. Surprise!

It's a dinosaur... with jazz hands. Get it? Me neither.

Yesterday morning, after an unplanned night out with old campaign friends (don’t I sound like a hack?) wherein we watched ML shred it at Hon Bar:

… and a bedtime that far exceeded original-goal bedtime (*cough* 10 p.m. *cough*), I woke-up to the sound of not one, not two, but three rather annoying alarms set – ok, drunkenly – by yours truly in the wee hours of the morning:

Let it be known that 3.5 hours is not enough sleep for Molly. I know this now.

Still, I hopped right out of bed, got my running gear on, and headed downtown for some early-morning running. I was nervous, because it’s always nerve wracking meeting up with a new group, but it turns out I had no business being apprehensive. Even though I felt like this:

If all goes well, I’ll write more about this new thing I’m getting involved in, but for now, I’ll just say this: Baltimore is beautiful at 5:30 a.m. It’s all the beauty of a night sky without all the people. The city is empty at that hour, and with the promise of a massive influx of people just around the corner, there’s an awesome sort of energy.

Really. I’m not lying. We ran from the east side down to the Inner Harbor for anย Easterย egg hunt (!) and I just couldn’t get enough of how pretty it looked with a night sky:

I didn’t take the picture above, but it gives you a little idea of what I’m talking about. And now I know – bring your phone to take pictures next time, Molly. Will do. Because the sunrise over the Harbor? Wow.

In conclusion, I’d like to say running pre-dawn in Baltimore is awesome and I can’t wait to do it more. The end.
