Didn't get out until after the sunset, but early enough to watch the moon rise in the east as I cruised around the Meadow View loop.
Distance: 7.14 miles
Weather: Cool and dark
A conspiracy of multiple origins led to me not getting out until around 6 p.m., well after the sun had set. So, with one headlamp on my head and another in my right hand, I dashed around Elk Meadow's Meadow View loop in the dark.
Running in the dark is a hit-or-miss thing for me. Sometimes I really enjoy it, others...not so much. Last night was one of the good night runs. Time seemed to stand still. All the hills seemed to have flattened. I just loved the feeling of movement as my forward progress broke the never-ending clouds of moisture emanating from my lungs in the cold night air.
First time this year I broke out the running pants.
