I'm going to have to keep an eye on when the sun is supposed to set because, as I mentioned, it was dark about half way thru my run and it was kind of scary. I didn't dress for running in the dark, either (black, pink and white plaid shorts, pink sports bra and black tank top and black running shoes). I don't think my pasty white legs and arms really count as reflective gear. LOL Luckily, I only had one truck pass me and he was decent enough to slow down (although I wasn't positive he saw me at first - maybe he was just out for a nice evening drive). I paused the Garmin and got in the ditch because even though I'm not distrustful, I AM a woman and I was all by myself, in the middle of nowhere in the dark. So yeah, I was kind of nervous and didn't really want him to notice my vulnerability. :/ Anyway, I'm considering buying one of those Jogger Pepper Spray things, just because I'm paranoid like that. It's probably overkill, but I don't like feeling nervous or uncomfortable when I'm alone.
One other thing I wanted to mention was that this run was pretty uneventful. No falls this time or anymore missing toenails (yet). My finger is still pretty sore from being split open and it makes using the laptop a little painful, but other than that, I'm healing quite nicely. :) Weirdly enough, I'm a little proud of my injuries. I feel like a "real" runner now. LOL
So, come to find out, school ends pretty early around here compared to other places. Graduation is always the weekend of Mother's Day in May and the rest of the grades usually get out the week after. :) However, I'm curious, when do you guys start school? We usually start the second week of August. We've been known to start as early as the 11th and as late as the 18th.
Tomorrow is me and Preston's first wedding anniversary. We don't have any plans, which is fine with me. My mom is taking the boys for the evening and all day Saturday, so we'll probably do something, which is mainly why I finally got off the couch and ran tonight. I really didn't want to have to squeeze in a run tomorrow when I know I'm going to want to relax and just spend the evening with my husband. :)
