Late night running…

Got out for a late night 4 miler (40mins) tonight πŸ™‚ Part of the run takes me along a footpath through the forest for about a mile, but what makes it really cool is that it’s pitch black. Tonight was really dark out as it was cloudy, so no moon and there are no street lights or even houses- just my little LED light to guide the way.

I must admit half way along I started thinking about nutters hiding in the shadows… helped me keep my pace up.

  1. You’re brave, I’m scared(ish) going along the streets that are quite busy!

    What’s this little LED light thing? Is this a gadget I haven’t got?! πŸ™‚

  2. LOL! it might be a gadget you haven’t got – I’m not sure where it came from it’s one of these

    But I carry it (wouldn’t want to look like a darlek)

    It’s good – I use it to light the way when I need it, ans when I don’t I face it backwards as I run so cars can see me.

    I think it cost about a fiver.

  3. Take care,running through a pitch black forest sounds scary to me!

  4. You’re supposed to strap thing onto your head? Ha ha, no way, I’d look even more stupid πŸ™‚

  5. I gave up nighttime running. We’re in the country – no shoulders on the road. I ended up jumping into the ditch/cornfield and wrenching my knee.

    And…there are scary things that go bump in the night!
