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 Think I'm Gonna Streak

Yeah, that's right. I think I'm going to streak. (ahem... a running streak) I toyed with the idea last year, but with coming off an injury and going right back into marathon training, I decided not to. But this year, when I heard about the Runner's World 2013 Holiday Running Streak , my gut reaction was "I want to do this". And after coming off of my 2nd Marathon that didn't go as I had hoped (I Gave Up During My 2nd Marathon) and  no real long distance race in my near future, now seems like a good time to do this. And depending on how this challenge goes, I am considering the idea of doing it for a full year. 
Anyone want to join me? 
So far my marathon recovery has been so so. My knee is feeling a little wonky. I rested until Thursday, and then I attempted to power-walk. It didn't go so great. My knee really didn't like it. So I rested another day. 
I was able to run 2 miles on Saturday with very few problems. I can tell that things aren't 100%, but I don't think I have any major injuries anywhere. 
Today consisted of the SmartStride for 30 minutes, a few upper body weights, and then a 30 minute power-walk this afternoon on the treadmill. Have you ever used a SmartStride? My gym has the equipment to 'test' it. I sure hope it stays because I love it. 
I'm planing on cross-training more along with adding in strength training to my schedule along with streaking ;) 
So, who wants to join me in the Runner's World challenge that may possibly move into a year long challenge?
