1. I like running when my energy is back up. I like it a lot. Today I pushed myself into accelerating just that little extra bit that makes me feel like I'm moving. There was ice on the sidewalks, so there was also a lot of decelerating, but overall the run itself was just plain fun and much better than the rest of my runs this week.
2. I do not like running when it is dark. I also do not like running when it is kind-of-dark, or becoming dark, or may-at-some-time-in-the-future-be-dark. Most of this is grounded in the somewhat rational fear of not wanting to be a single female runner alone on the streets at night, however it probably doesn't adequately account for the busy rush hour roads that I ran along side of and their accompanying well lit-sidewalks. Anyway, I literally zoomed out of work/school today at 4:30pm to complete my 5 miles before it got dark (these silly sunlight hours are your fault Winter). I'm happy to report - sunshine success!
