After attempting a run in the seriously pitch black, pre-sunrise towards the end of last week on a path that was not lit at all (and ironically, not taking my own advice), I realized I had one more tip for running in the dark: use a head lamp! Bonus: you'll feel like a miner... maybe.
Today's run: 8 km relaxed. Weather: 6°C and slightly overcast, but with the most incredible sunset I've seen in a long time. (I didn't take my phone with me tonight, so I'm afraid you'll just have to take my word for it.) Feeling: so great, I said "Fuckin' eh!" aloud when I made distance. Hopefully those around me just chalked it up to Tourette's.
