The Best Part About Running IS….

…the birds.

I never run with music.

During a race, I want to hear if someone is coming up behind me.

During a jog, I want to hear nature.

What’s not to love about a low-flying hawk’s screech, an owl’s hoot, or a crow’s caw?

I am not alone.  Nor would I want to be.

  1. I have run several spring marathons in the woods, where I have entertained myself by birding by ear. I did a run last week, where I saw robins and bluebirds. A killdeer landed on the trail in front of me. I saw a hawk in an old dead tree. I heard at least 2 kinds of woodpeckers. LOVED your article!
