A little run in the dark



We got in short runs in the dark the last couple nights.  Nothing spectacular, other than balmy weather and it is supposed to be a high of 30 by Sunday - so get out and run, right?  This is one of our multi-use trails through the neighborhood.

A little dark?  We donned headlights and cruised around freaking out the local wildlife!

It is extra quiet and peaceful on the trail at night.

So what does everyone do during the short, cold days of winter to stay sane?  Inquiring minds need to know. Treadmills and bicycle trainers are borderline insanity for us (although we do force ourselves to use the trainers, but we don't have a treadmill) - we need to be outside!!!  We were able to get in about 5 miles each night, and it seems like you are going faster at night?!?!  Happy (dark) Trails!

I run early in the morning in the winter normally (with headlamp) but this winter plan to do Crossfit during the week and ski/snowshoe on weekends.

A look at the darker side of running in Colorado. Like it. Thanks for the window into the night.

I actually ran last night and guess what? It rained on me! First for me in Las Vegas.

We just do what you do! Run in the dark. No treadmills though...fresh air only!
