Still just a beginner, so 4. But I feel like I'm getting better and better every time.

Just keep doing what you're doing. 4 miles is good for a beginner, better than most beginners. 5% increase in distance every week/2 weeks (Assuming you run 4+ days a week) is a good way to gradually build up your distance.

well I am still working on the c25k program, sort of, except that I am stretching it out from 20-30 to about 40+ minutes a day.. I just don't wanna stop when I really get warmed up and get my breathing and stride working together. There is still some walking here and there, but I keep surprising myself on how much better I'm getting at this shit. I was always more of a sprinter and would do hill sprints or something instead of real running but now I love it.

4's better than I could manage when I was starting out!

Today: I turned 4 miles in 31:00, but went for one more loop around the neighborhood and the wheels just about came off. 5 1/3 miles in 42-ish, then went into the pool for a few laps and then core work.

Second, weight loss - when I played competitive racquetball I could play up to three hours post-work and not be much lighter afterwards, while 3-4 morning miles would shed weight very efficiently. It turns out that while your heart rate rises and falls efficently with your activity levels, your metabolic rate makes slower transitions, particularly as your activity level falls off. Morning runs elevate your metabolic rate which stays somewhat elevated for a number of hours post-run - provided you don't gorge yourself afterwards.

Third: it makes me happy. I like starting the day happy.

Agreed! I like running in the morning because often if I try to fit a workout in later in the day, I find myself overbooked or "too tired" (read: too lazy) to do it. The motivation is there for me in the morning. Although sometimes it's a little hard to roll out of bed, after the first few minutes, I'm totally in the zone. I also enjoy the fact that the city is still "sleeping" when I go for my runs, because it's like a weird sense of calm being one of the only people out and about at that hour.

I'd like to run mornings but I find that I have surprisingly more stamina in the evening. I think this is because I've been eating all day and have a lot of calories to burn.

Only two... not much of a runner.
