The Sounds of Silence?

If you usually run wearing headphones and listening to your favorite running tunes, do yourself a favor, leave them at home next time.  Now that the roads are clear and I’m running outside again, I have been using headphones and the ipod.  But the other day I decided to leave them home on my six mile run.  It was really enjoyable to hear the sounds of the city.  Cars and construction machinery as I ran up Woodward, people talking as I ran through downtown Royal Oak and kids yelling as I ran through neighborhoods.  I felt like I was part of the action not just passing through it.  Try it, you might like it.
