During my morning runs, I almost always choose to run on the Embarcadero. It’s well-lit; populated by other people running, walking, and commuting; and equipped with bathrooms and water fountains.
As a result of this route being my go-to run course during the week, the Bay Bridge is a constant in my life. It’s usually my turnaround point and serves as a point of reference for miles traveled. Now that the days are lengthening, the Bay Bridge is being lit up by the sun rising behind its eastern span. I couldn’t be more excited: finishing a run with the sun rising is a well-earned reward for waking up and running before dawn. Entering my apartment post-run without any sunshine a depressing reality of the winter months.
