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.

If you aren't sure what Noxgear is check out this video.

Run 4 Luck 2010

The wind was incredible. We lost electricity around 4:00am. It stayed off for an hour before it came back on. Then it went off again. It blinked off 3 times before I left for the race. That should give you some indication of the wind that I was dealing with. As I type this, we currently do not have electricity. I was home for about 30 minutes before it went off again. This time it has been off for hours.


I had really wanted to do this race in under 39. But with the weather conditions, I just wasn’t sure how it would go. The starting horn went off and here we went. I was hemmed in and determined to get unhemmed. So yes, I went out too fast. Way too fast for me. At one point my pace was around 7:00 minutes which was way too much for me. I slowed down but tried to keep a decent pace as best as I could.

I was doing ok until around mile 2.5 and I started struggling. I didn’t remember it being this hilly last year. I tried to keep my pace under 10:00 but at times just couldn’t.

Around mile 3.25 I was trying to push harder as I thought I could set a PR but I was struggling bad. Then I saw my running buddy pass me. It spurred me to push harder. I caught up with her for a moment but I couldn’t continue at her pace. But it motivated me to push harder.

With the finish line in sight, I gave it all I had. I crossed the clock at 37:22. WOO HOO.. I just set a PR.
