This is the second time that I’ve tried to sneak in a run between the end of school and when my youngest gets off the bus. Today felt rushed. I really don’t enjoy running in the dark and it feels like it’s dark the majority of the day that I’m not at work right now so it might be a good solution until we start getting more daylight but it feels a little too rushed. Maybe getting into the routine of it will help. The plan was to meet my colleagues at 3:15 and finish our run at 3:45. One of our colleagues got caught up once school got out so we waited for her until 3:30. At that point, I knew I needed to head out or I wouldn’t even be able to get my mile completed before the bus arrived. She eventually called and met us out on our return trip. I think we ran at least 2 miles but I didn’t take my Garmin. We ran about 20 minutes total at a fairly quick pace. It was a little more rushed than I like after a busy day though so I think we will have to come up with a protocol for what to do when one of us doesn’t show up on time. I still think running with my colleagues in the daylight is better than running alone in the dark!
