I hate running in the dark. I find a million excuses to skip my run at night and soon the mornings will be dark too. I am forced to stick to lit roads and then have to suffer with traffic flying past me. I don't know how you all do it. I am definitely not brave enough to trail run at night and anyway since I am training for a marathon I do want to stick to the roads. I just can't run the country lanes that I like to run at night
Last night was particularly interesting. I bought a head mounted light recently but feel a bit silly wearing it. So, I headed out and forgot that the road I was running down (to avoid the busier more trafic laden route) is not lit and would be plunged in to darkness on the return leg. Running back I could hardly see where I was stepping and almost body checked a guy on a bike coming in the opposite direction without any lights on! I was so freaked out I ran my fastest leg down that route ever
I don't know how you guys get motivated about running in the dark. I just hate it but am going to have to learn to love it over the coming weeks /sigh
