The satisfying scrunch of leaves underfoot

The fresh air!

The mist over the playing fields this morning, gradually getting burned off as the suns strength grew

I don't like running in the heat either. Yesterday I did a run in the p*ssing rain. it might sound weird but I really enjoyed it. It was like being a kid again jumping in the puddles.

I run in the morning, and i really like the darkness and watching it gradually lighten as i run.

The dark evenings mean my fellow club runners can't see my fat arse wobbling anymore.....

love the cooler evenings without the idiots outside the pub and the cooling rain when it's there.  also realising that come spring i'll be well ahead of where i was this time last year...bring on the bad weather i'm out in it all..

I like to see a fat arse running  mind there is a fat fella that runs in all the shut shops I pass

I love the early morning's darkness and stars and the moon!

I like being able to wear gloves - something to blow your nose on and wipe sweat off face with (not same hands obviously).

All of the above - I fecking hate running in the summer.

The off-road gets wet - so much more fun!  Mud, mud, mud!
The air conditioning works in the gym.
Lunchtime runs are bearable, heatwise.
Less sweat - less washing!

Slippery leaves are a downside.

Ahh so true,the mist over this field this morning reminded me of an ocean. I love wrapping up warm and feeling fresh rather than a swimmer. The autumn is just so much more beautiful than summer I find.

I hate autumn because winter coming.
The start of the nights getting longer and longer.
The feeling of the cold settling in.
The air of dampness.
Having to run in the dark and sometimes limited to where you run.

I like running in Winter.  Only get a couple of really cold runs each year.  Being warm yet feeling the cold air hit the back of your throat.  Great stuff.

I can breathe properly.
(as Corinthian says - no hayfever)

No asthma, yay!

Wearing my running jacket with pockets so I don't have to stuff keys into my shorts.

And, as already said, all the stuff that makes Autumn so lovely like the colours and the mists etc.
