Ahh, I think you’re mistaking the crazy for good parenting!  It’s normal to worry about your kids, and running in the dark is dangerous regardless if it’s just you, or you and BabyDane! 

I do know what you mean about the awesome night/early morning run before the sun comes up.  I used to do it all the time.  It’s definitely very different than the after work runs I try to get in now.

Aww!  I can’t even remember the last time I ran in the dark, maybe early this summer when it was still dark at 5:30am?  I love it too but can imagine I’d be worried sick if I had a baby with me!

@DaneLady:  Awww! I’m so scared to run in the dark by myself, I guess I watch too many Forensic File shows. I know I’d be terrified of doing it with a baby.

Ahh! You poor thing. I’m glad BabyDane was at least oblivious to the terror you were feeling. 😉

I can’t run in the dark.. I actually used to time my runs so I’d get home RIGHT before dark LOL

@DaneLady:  You just saved me some serious terror!

I do a lot of 4am running, so lots of running in the dark. Your post had me imagining my run with my precious, perfect baby in tow… Terrifying!

Ok maybe i’m more selfish but I’d be totally scared of a serial killer of some sorts coming out to get me, or following me home!

I guess that’s what living in New York does to you! I wish I could jog when it’s dark!
