  1. I think my best answers are: ...worked late, completed my second run of the day, then helped my daughter with homework, prepared and ate dinner, and did other random things at home, then quickly it was 9:00 p.m. I went to bed wearing the clothes I'd run in, and then the next morning I woke up and ran in them again! ...almost ran 3 times in a day. I had a double, and ran my second run at lunch, but all of my days were running together and I forgot I'd run it. I got dressed to run after work, and then saw my lunch run laundry and double checked Strava to ensure that I was in fact do

  2. (It wouldn't let me edit, so I'm just re-posting this to add photos.) Sometimes I sign up for a race, and then make a vacation out of it. Examples are Boston, New York, Loopfests. Other times I schedule a vacation, and then look for a race to add to it. The point here is to have fun, explore new places and add a little running spice to an already good trip. If it fits into the training plan to race it hard, well, that's a bonus. So this was the latter. Sure, I had hoped to race hard, and made some goals, yadda, yadda. But once I got there, the running gods gave me plent

  4. I've carried a little cheap handheld flashlight before and just turned it on when I was running on a road and a car was coming so they could see me. I've also heard some good things about knuckle lights. I also wear a reflective vest when it's dark and cooler sometimes. The entire surface of one of my current pairs of shoes is all reflective material as well so there's that. When light shines on them, they look like they're electric shoes.

  5. Yeah there's a difference between reflective things so others can see you vs. illumination things for you to see. I know I definitely do not want to get hit by anything that's moving faster than me - car, cyclist, whatever. Blinky lights or at least something reflective makes me feel a ton better even if I don't have a light for myself.

  6. All my runs are in the dark and I never wear a headlight. My thought is that headlights are for you to see better, and reflectors are for people to see you. I have lots of reflective stuff and strap a blinky light to my leg. Keep the mace handy!

  7. I wouldn't go out where I live without a light but I live very rurally and I wouldn't be able to even run without some sort of light. That being said, if a biker hits you because of no light I sure hope you don't get hurt.

  8. I like the vest ones my kids have and I've been thinking of getting one too. Plus they have these blinking lights on their shoes to help people notice them.
