During the Christmas and New Year holidays I managed to get out and run in daylight several times and I really really enjoyed that. Now I'm back to running in the evenings after work, when it is dark, and I am forced to run in streetlights.
I don't like to be stuck on a certain route, I like to improvise and choose what road or path to run as I get there.
I usually listen to podcasts when running, and that makes running in the dark much more enjoyable. Todays run was one of the best according to podcast listening. I listened to my own appearance on the Running From The Reaper Podcast #62, that was really special.
In the podcast were also mentioned many other runners and I thought to myself that there must be lots and lots of us out there. Isn't that an amazing thought? When I'm out running, someone else, a friend, is probably out on his or her track at the same time. That thought inspired me to run a bit faster today. Even if I'm not competing with anyone, who might be running out there. I don't want to be left too far behind.
