BYOL

Bring Your Own Light. Melissa Bajumdar has graciously been duped into being my "safety runner" for my race in a few weeks. Since she may encounter having to run/hike the trails at night, we are doing a practice run at Patapsco tomorrow (Wednesday). Sunset is at 8:04pm and we will probably head out slightly before then. We'll do the loop I do that takes me about 1.5 hours. And I'll run it once beforehand too if you wanted to do more. ~8 minute pace, all are welcome if you want a fun and light (pun intended) run! We will probably park at the Park & Ride as to not draw attention to the fact that we are out there. Holler in the comments if we should expect your ugly  face.

Hey, I thought I saw you two running across the road with headlamps! I had just finished my run, but I was too far away to "holler".

1. Awesome that Steve-O just used the word holler

2. You should have run with them!

1. thanks
2. I didn't see this post until after the run.
3. 8 min per mile is pretty "baller" for me at Patapsco. At least on the route I do. Up the two big hills of Bull Run, follow the powerlines, then through the rocky section into the Catonsville CC XC course. I can do most of that in 8ish per min, less or more depending, but the hills and rocky section slow me down.
4. I just said "baller" in addition to "holler".

There are people out there who don't check the blog every hour?

That was definitely us! We probably were going slower than 8 minute pace, I generally just put that to indicate a conversational pace for all the road runners in the group. I'll let you know if we do it again!
