We met up in Bellevue at dusk and ran west towards the lake. It was pitch black once we made it to a beach on the shore of Lake Washington. A perfect place to stop and take some pictures to commemorate the occasion!
After our stop we headed back to the cars. We ran two miles slightly downhill to the lake, so it was two miles slightly uphill to get back. Oof.
One thing that worked really well for me was to use the clip on light that I had on my hat as well as hold a headlamp in my hand. One of my teammates gave me that tip and it was perfect. The light on your head illuminates the general area in front of you and makes you visible, the light in your hand can be pointed easily at anything you want to check out, like curbs or obstacles or anything else.
Hopefully the team will get together to run again after Ragnar! We had such a fun time.
