For all you fellow Utah runners, I have an idea. Lets run the Mapleton Moonlight Half Marathon coming up Friday night, August 12th. We can get together before the race, hang out, eat some Twinkies, and then run the race.
I think this is going to be a really fun race for a few reasons:
1) It's at night!
2) The Perseids Meteor Shower is that night.
3) It sounds pretty casual, more like a fun run than a race. You run without a watch - the goal is to see who can finish as close to midnight as possible. You can start anytime you want around 9pm or 10pm. Awesome!
4) Awards for best costumes. (Hmmm, I may have to think about this one.)
5) Big finish line party.
6) Finishers medals for everyone.
This will be a unique challenge for picture taking. I'm excited!
Do you like to run in the dark?
I love it. Me and the head lamp have become close, personal friends over the years.
