One of the things I enjoy about an early morning run is watching the rest of the world wake up. It’s especially interesting on Saturdays. This Saturday I was out the door before 8:00AM for an 8 mile run. As I ran through downtown Royal Oak it was evident that much of the world sleeps in on Saturdays. Yes, there were a few people in each of the coffee shops, a handful of cars at Holiday Market on the south end of town and also at Hollywood Market on the north end. But other than that, not much action. A few other runners and walkers but very light traffic and closed retail stores. It felt good to know that I was doing something few other people would do – getting a great workout early on a Saturday.
