When do you run?

I think I have decided that I need to run on my lunch break.  By the time I get home most days it's after 4pm (which is actually early compared to 5pm) but it's getting dark by 4:30 or earlier and I just am not sure yet about running in the dark.  What do other people do?  I don't know, I don't know any other runners.  =(  Anyway, before I got pregnant I was running (with a lot of walking) during my lunch break.  I was only going 2 miles, so I will have to figure out a couple routes that are longer.  That also means that I am going to be coming back to work really sweaty and gross, with no where to take a shower.  But I can sponge off in the bathroom . . .

Yesterday I had every intention of going for a run after I got home from work.  However, Damian started basketball yesterday so I had no one to watch Maddox.  I thought about taking Maddox with me (jogging stroller and all) but then I got home and he wasn't feeling very well.  He's had a runny nose and a small fever in the evenings since Friday.  I got home yesterday and he wouldn't let me put him down.  I decided it was probably a bad idea to take him out in the cold.  Then I remembered that I didn't really have time anyway because I had to pick up D at 5.  =/  Plus, I really, really didn't want to run in the dark. 

It's interesting because before it started getting dark so early, it was pretty common to see several people out running after work, but I didn't see one person yesterday.  When do they go run?  Do they give it up in the winter?  I can't imagine a runner being seasonal.  Maybe they do the same thing that I am thinking of and go during their lunch. . .

I decided to run during lunchtime yesterday evening.  I even packed my bag to be ready to take to work and then I was thinking about it, and realized that if I don't go to zumba tonight then I won't be able to go at all this week.  Tuesday and Thursday are the only days it's offered at 5:30 and Thursday we are going to get family pictures done.  Then I was looking at the weather for the rest of the week and today is supposed to be the last sunny day for the foreseeable future, so then I've been thinking maybe I should have brought my bag after all. . .

Well, yesterday was Friend Makin' Monday and I didn't post it.  So here it is, a day late, again.  =)
