I was super excited to get up this morning and use the new head lamp George ordered through REI. It had the blinking light in the back just like Scout's. Although I really didn't need to have the back blinkers on, I put them on for the fun of it.
As soon as I was out, I realized it was really dark this morning. The headlight worked great as far as the beam, but I wished I had worn my glasses so I could see as far as the beam was shining.
I crossed over the lake and immediately saw blinking little lights. Was it actual lights or little eyes. I couldn't tell and then realized they were some sort of eyes. Were they darting towards me, I couldn't tell. I high tailed it back, feeling like I was running madly while I kept glancing back to make sure it wasn't after me. I continued on and continued to see little eyes everywhere. I soon wished in addition to the back blinking lights the headlamp had some little warning sound to scare little eyes away from me. I then wondered if my, ''in case I get lost at the Bruiser whistle'' would have made me feel more secure.
Towards the end of my run, I finally decided like Squirrel had plotted about ''ice pants'', I would invent an attachment for the headlamp like an old school transistor radio. If only an ipod could make outside sound, I think that would work. Something small and with sound surely would scare away those little blinking lights.
Well at least I got out, but I can't say it was the most relaxing run ever.
It's surprisingly warm out, so enjoy your day!
