Running in the dark


It only took me a few days to get used to the warm November weather again. The one thing I totally forgot to bring was running clothes that reflect light though. I don’t like running in the dark and that’s something I can not get used to. There was a team run earlier this week – hills in the evening. I knew the route and wasn’t too afraid of getting lost, but more afraid of what I may step into…. specifically, with my recent run-ins with dead snakes… I only once stepped onto something that I’d rather not go back and check on what it was…

As you can imagine, the only real reason to run in the dark is the promised social dinner afterwards. I am happy to report that El Arroyo still offers BBQ Chicken Quesadillas. They are not on the menu anymore though, so you better ask for them… They are goooooooood! 🙂

This weekend, I am running the Rock ‘n Roll half marathon in San Antonio, Texas. It is the fourth time I have been running this race. The weather forecast is a little too warm for my liking with t-storms. Hopefully, it will hold dry during the race. I noticed that the weather on race day is unpredictable. The first year I ran this race, we started with near-freezing temperatures. The second year it was hot and a record-high humidity. Last year it started off cloudy and near perfect only to have the sun come out half-way through and ruin a great race so far. I like the sun, don’t get me wrong, but she could have waited another hour… Let’s see how the t-storms hold up this year…

Since I can’t share a photo of my running route in the dark, I’ll show you one of Austin in daylight. Enjoy!

  1. Warm November? I live in England. That has certainly never existed here. Good luck in the marathon 🙂
