Time is running out for getting some night trail running to prep for starting a race in the dark (i.e. Stone Mill). Running in the woods in the dark with a headlamp takes a little getting used to but it is exhilarating. No one else you know would even think of doing it (maybe rightly so) but seriously, it…is…a…blast! We have way fewer falls then when we run in daylight and there are all sorts of distractions. Don’t knock it ’til ya tried it!
