Why I love running at night

May 01, 2016


I strongly prefer running at night. The main reason is I feel much faster in the dark. It’s the same reason running on a trail can be exhilarating. When you are closed in a bit you feel like you are moving faster in relation to your surroundings. The ground slips away more quickly.

Running is all about solitude. It’s largely a mental struggle between you and the road. Being alone helps me feel stronger and quicker. The lack of distractions makes the struggle more transparent.
