On my run on the local trails last night, I tried to show passersby how I’m a joyous, friendly, enthusiastic runner. I ended up making all sorts of strange, ugly, squinty faces as I tried to keep the bugs out of every hole in my head.
I like running in the morning and in the evening but prefer morning for a few reasons:
- Know I’ll get the run done
- Only have a safe, boring breakfast in my stomach instead of a day of food that potentially ruins my stomach for the run
- So many bugs in the evening!
Bugs were out of control last night.
Talk about a short, random, post!
Tell me about your worst encounter with a bug on a run! Big one down the throat? One in the eye that stayed around for days? Any bug avoiding advice? I usually wear sunglasses to protect my eyes, but this was too close to dark for sunglasses.
