Tied up with work and other stuff till about 10 tonight.

Fortunately, tonight is a full moon, a solstice *AND* an eclipse. So I'm now planning an eclipse run in fish creek at midnight.

A short, easy run for me today. I'm packing and cleaning and packing and stacking, and organizing cat care...off tomorrow on a long drive to be with my family over the holidays...I'll get a chance to run with my sister for the first time. That will be great! :D

Wow today was a banner day for me - swam for 30 minutes and then did a run! :shock:

That's almost like belonging to the dark side, but not quite!

I didn't run today - I didn't plan to though because of a lunch out and then a get together after work. I will after work tomorrow - although we're supposed to get rain and 90 km/hr winds :shock:

5.5 miles night trail run with 5 other people and 2 dogs (including sammy!). It was fun except the part where sammy disappeared in the dark... our group was spread out in that section and I didn't know if he was ahead with the people ahead, but I was calling and calling and he wasn't coming... so one girl and I backtracked a bit, couldn't find him... and I was really getting nervous, but we kept going and eventually he found us again. Scared me!!! Glad he's ok... aside from that it was really fun. :)

Our XC ski plans were thwarted, so I quickly messaged a friend and we headed out for the most technical night run I've done yet. I've done a fair number of "in the dark" trail runs, but this one was on a trail on which I really have to concentrate on some sections during the day! And I didn't fall once. Yay me! And, I was just slightly out of my comfort zone the entire time, as my friend is a bit faster than me, and I worked to keep up.

Here's one bit:

'twas good. Total of about 10.3km done in 1:13.
