Night run

Day Fifteen (Tuesday September 15th) Scared to run by myself in the dark.

This whole “facing your fears” bit is cool but I’m beginning to think I’m invincible or something. Maybe I was just being uber paranoid while out running in the dark, but if someone were to decide they wanted to attack me in the dark, what am I going to do? And by the way, I don’t think attackers are dumb people and to attack a runner is a good idea because they’re probably really tired. So again, there was no moment of enlightenment while running in the dark solo, instead I just ran my fastest 7km yet. Getting ready for this 10km Halloween Night Run… it’s like they knew exactly what my heart desired!!!

Now go face a fear; do something that scares you!

I haven’t forgot

Promise this doing stuff I’m scared of has continued and prospered… just seems harder to sit at the computer on a regular basis than I thought it would be. I will work on carving out a specific time to give updates on these fears.

Some quick updates- the vampire inspired photo shoot in the graveyard (day three) was awesome in a bloodcurdling way. I guess, as per usual, I didn’t really think it through on how ridiculous the notion of going into a graveyard at night would be. I mean it’s one thing to walk through a cemetery at night, another to set up shop, light candles, and jump all over tombstones to “get the shot.” Sorry Betty Davis!
Yesterday (day four) I finally put a pen to paper about the scaring experience I had while on my road trip and a fear I should have faced while there to likely avert the end of a friendship and buying a plane ticket home to YYZ from Halifax. Speaking to the fear I experienced is scary in itself. As soon as I can get long enough to type that up, I will share… until then I’m off to work, then to find something else I’m scared of (or maybe I’ll get lucky at work)!
