Muledoggie's comment made me think of a strange thing that happened to me a couple of years ago. I was working 12+ hours a day and found the only way to get in a daily run was to do it around 4:30am. I was running laps around my complex when I looked toward the main entrance. I thought I was seeing things... There were two large coyotes standing at the entrance to my complex. It scared me right back into the house. I bought a treadmill after that...

I was running along in the dark (5:30am probably) and saw some movement out of the corner of my eye. I immediately thought the worst and imagined a dog coming after me. But it was just a neighbor doing pushups in his driveway! Got my heart rate up.
Whatever your past has been, your future is spotless!
5am running...wow, that is early. I am a morning runner too...but not quite that early. I have done it...but only a couple of times. I only work part time/casual so I can usually manage a later run. Today, is fog and drizzle. Seems like that is all we've been getting lately and I'm getting tired of it. I am doing a fundraisor run tomorrow morning, 6.7K around a lake. Guess what, its giving fog and drizzle. Lol
I know what you mean. I now have this visual in my head that, though faded through the years, has never left. That event forced a change of schedules for me... I moved away from that area and no more running at 5:00am.

wow, that is something else to see on a run! Lol I must say that my runs are probably pretty dull. I am in a very country rural area and the most I see is maybe a squirrel dart across the road in front of me. lol
The absolute strangest (and disturbing) thing that I have saw on my runs was on a rare, very early in the morning before work run. A man was standing to the side of a business building. He had his shirt over his face, pants down and was fondling himself. Once I stabilized myself after this visual, I actually felt sorry for him. I cannot imagine how mentally tortured he was to feel so compelled to humiliate himself in that manner.
