    14.5 miles. Warm up and half marathon on a winding hilly course. A day ago temps dropped from hot/humid to chilly/windy (I'm not complaining...) Didn't feel like I loosened up for the entire distance. Even so, still placed in my age group, which always helps. :) Hope everybody's Labor Day runs were good ones.

    After days of stifling heat and humidity, it was chilly and windy. Temps in the 50s. Hope it stays this way. 6 mile run.

    I started the day off with a 6 mile run at about 5:00 a.m. this morning. Does anybody here run with a headlamp? It late enough in the year now that it's still dark out when I start and finish my morning runs and each year I consider getting a headlamp but never have. Suggestions?

    I ran at 5:30 this morning in the dark. There are dimly lit street lamps, but in some places it's really pitch black. It was chilly for my 4.5 miles this morning.

    I run the Madison WI to Chicago 200-mi relay each year in June and that includes a leg at night. Headlamps, safety vests and strobes are required equipment. Petzl makes a range of excellent products at various price points. I have a TACTIKKA XP /www.petzl.com/us/outdoor/headlamps/tactikka-series/tactikka-xp> that's comfortable, bright, and gets it done at night while racing on paths in the Wisconsin woods. Hope that helps.

    I run in the early morning darkness for most of the year and never got use to wearing a headlamp. I carry a very small LED flashlight that is waterproof and has a clip so I can attach it to my waistband when it gets lighter out...

    To MICHIGAN PLANNER: I run around 5:30 a.m. always with my trusty LL Bean Trailblazer headlamp.

    10K at around 10 min/mile. during the run, i checked the temperature and my iPhone read 91. i had to walk for about 1/4 mile when i started mile 6. i think i would qualify for the Darwin Awards today.

    people that compete in the Badwater run are fucking badass. (or just really really stupid)

    Temperature: 54 degrees PERFECT running weather. Ran 4 miles in under 25 minutes this a.m. No better way to start the day.

    Thanks to those that suggested some headlamps. I have a gift card to LL Bean so I may give that one a shot. I've tried carrying a small LED flashlight before and it wasn't for me - I like having my hands free.


    Sounds like my run... except the 25 minute part. My 4 miles took about 30 minutes. I love the weather this time of year.
