I am trying. This time of year with less light and warmth to go out and do things is a great time to reflect on your life and make any changes that need to be made, so you have time to make them habits before the fun summer comes.
I got in 1 run last week. Here in the pacific northwest we get down to very little sunlight this time of year. We are at about 9 hours of sunlight a day right now (and of course I work 8.5 (when you factor in lunch) hours a day so it is getting tricky to get my runs in when it is still light and not 30degrees or less. I don’t have any actual cold (freezing) weather running gear yet.
If I get caught in traffic or need to stop at the store or something then there is no light left for my run, we still have 2-3 weeks before we hit the solstice so we will lose about another 30 minutes of light before we start getting it back so I think I am going to hit the dollar store for some cheap glow lights (like the kind you wear at a rave hahahaha) so I can start getting in 1 or 2 runs in the dark. I will have to buy some extra for Artemis too, being an almost totally black dog makes her hard to see in the dark. Her collar is reflective but I want more. When I get all decked out for night running ill take a picture for you. Here are some from yesterdays run.
