Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

I did it. I did it. I did it. I know that running 6 miles to many people is nothing, but to me it was a ‘big’ deal for me today to be able to do it. I’m pleased with myself.

I’ve never run that far alone. I’ve always had a running buddy and encouragement to keep moving. Today, I had to be my own encouragement. I felt myself slipping near the end and wanted to walk, but I told myself I was too close to quit and I kept going.

As I saw my car in the distance, with a scene of Rocky playing in back of my head, wishing I had the theme song on my Ipod, I half jogged half shuffled my way to the parking lot. I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs that I did it, but I refrained.

Instead, I started laughing as I took a look in the rearview mirror. What I saw was a red face, almost purple, with patches of salt and salt streaks, with a smile so big – yes, I am a Runner – and that is a beautiful thing.
