I just love night running!
Last night I met Linda before Diane's bootcamp, and we put in 4 miles on the trails near Karen's Bakery in Folsom. The nice thing was that we started at 5:20p and it was still light out. It wasn't until our last mile that I had to turn on my headlamp. Linda never turned hers on, so my light was apparently enough for her.
There is just something about a night run that is so neat! I can't explain it. Perhaps it's the lack of congestion on the trails. Perhaps it's the complete stillness of the river. Or maybe it's the fact that you have to pay closer attention to your footing. Whatever it is, I'm hooked and absolutely love it!
Thanks Linda for meeting me out there for a very nice 4 mile early evening run.
This Saturday Pam and I will be participating in our first 35k (22 miles) trail race in Woodside. We have run a portion of this course before and really enjoyed it and have heard awesome stuff from others who have run the 35k portion, so this will be exciting and a new challenge for us. Since it's suppose to rain on Saturday, this will make for a very muddy and wet 22 mile run. Wish us luck!
