Running in the dark
July 11, 2012
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?
