Head Gear

So I am officially rocking the head gear...meaning I bought a cute little head lamp!! I used it for the first time last night and am now aware of 2 new things about myself:
1. I am crazy, who knew that I would ever in my 31 years of life actually want to run in the damp, dark and cold night (with no one chasing me).
2. Running with head gear does not make me a dork, although rambling about it to complete strangers does.
I'm not sure how this is going to turn out long term, I kind of wish the light was stronger, but if I run in a well lit area it really works out. I'm going to give it another go tonight, hoping for a 4 mi run. Last night was exactly 3 mi at a slow 10 minute pace, but ya know, it was still dark a little damp and I had to watch out!!
This weekend is the Ho-Ho-Ho Run and the Runners Edge Bagel run. Planning on running both and am pretty excited for the Ho Run. I am hoping to come close to my PO Run PR, but I haven't been running as often and this course has waaay more runners.

Good luck with your weekend races! I have a headlamp, too, but haven't yet tried it out...
