Early morning, long run, Tehran
Running in Tehran at 5am is a unique experience. When I was running on the pavement it was still dark and the only people on the streets were binmen and sweepers. As I left the main streets and ran around the park there were a few people exercising just before dawn. When the sun came up, the rush began. You could see the first group of people getting out the bus and make their way to work. An hour later, in another park there were quite few runners, some greeting, some cheering on you, and some prefer their own solitude. A few minutes past eight coming back home in a taxi, you could see the second wave of rush. I just wish I had my camera with me.
