Oh, daylight savings. How I hate you. It's now dark at 4:30pm here in southern Alaska, and while I don't mind the dark, I don't want to run in it!
I'm very nervous about running in the dark - even in well-lit neighborhoods. It just doesn't seem okay to me. That leaves me with running in the am (AHAHAHHAHA) or mid-day at work.
The mid-day plan seems easiest, but we don't have shower facilities in my building, so I'm thinking about joining the gym across the street for two reasons:
1) Shower/freshen up/ have a place to change
2) Place to run inside or do other workout stuff if it's really nasty out
The downside is that this is extra $$ that I don't really want to spend right now...
Does anyone run mid-day? How do you freshen up? My office wouldn't care about me walking around in sneakers & running garb as I walk to the elevevator lobby. (Let's be honest. They wouldn't care if I wore that to work - let along if I was just dashing out to run!)
Would baby wipes work? Or like Wet Ones? I'm not planning on doing super long runs - 2-3m max. It's cold out, so I shouldn't sweat too much, right?
