Five minutes driving. It’s 6:30 in the morning on the way to work. I watch out my windshield. Joggers are up plying the streets. Usually in pairs. This is a social activity (much like having coffee).
My observation? Of seven that I encounter, six are female.
Now, not to rock the boat, but — we are always told that only men would get up in the morning for an early breakfast, or for a Bible Study, or for a social time. My observation this morning says the opposite!
Would an early morning jog club be acceptable? Are these jogging pairs peer counseling — the answer to community mental health? Maybe these are just mom’s who need time away from the kids before the day starts?
And the best question of all — What was I doing riding in a car when I could have been out in the fresh air?
