Running in the dark

Last January we moved to the country, and I started to do the school run running.

But the thing about the country is that it has no street lights! And many times I found myself wondering whether it was safe to take the next step. Because I was literally in the dark about my path. And let me tell you, it is kind of scary to put one foot in front of the other, if you don't know what's in front of you.

I started getting visions of myself, holding a flash light in my mouth during my runs. But I was worried I would get jaw lock. So imagine my joy when I discovered Outdoor GB. They sell lots of running stuff, that is not your average running gear, and one of the things that made my heart go pitter patter were their Running Head Torches. I mean, how brilliant is that! I can see myself running in Winter with one on my head, lighting my own way. I'll totally rock that look! I'll be that cute mom with the headlight.

I may even use it in bed, whenever I want to read and hubby is nagging me to turn off the light.

Do you run in the dark?
And if so, do you take any precautionary measures?

  1. I run in the dark in the winter. I bought a head lamp but I also run with a large group of people. I have night blindness so running at night can be pretty tricky for me!

  3. I have a clip light that hooks on to my hat....no matter if it is visor ball cap or a beanie. it is so light that I forget it is there. I also have reflective clothing and tights. I hope to get some cool reflective stickers for my birthday....they really rock and work.

  4. My sister gave my Dad a head lamp for his birthday a few years back and he found it incredibly useful. Did you know you can use them to find your way to the toilet in the middle of the night and then use it to see what you're aiming at? Not quite how you're planning on using yours but incredibly useful none the less.

  5. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    Boycott American Women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

    1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

    2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

    3. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

    4. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

    5. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

    Not one single American woman has EVER condemned their fellow American women for committing these crimes against men. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

    A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

    -25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
    -25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
    -85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
    -70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
    -The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.

    Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
