After a few days of laziness and procrastination, I got inspired to go for a short run (2.1 miles) tonight to try out my son's headlamp that I had hoped to use for the SHITR this weekend. It came up in a FB discussion about what I would need to get through my 3+ hours. I was told to make sure it didn't give me a headache, wouldn't slip around too much and was bright enough for my needs.
It was a bit of a fail. While I am probably more visible with it, it did a pretty half ass job of lighting the way - and that is between streetlights. I can't imagine using it for the trails. It didn't really bother my head and would be better than nothing, but I'll go out to a couple of stores tomorrow and see if I can come up with something better. Definitely the sort of time I wish I lived in a place where there were more shopping options than Dicks (which just opened), Walmart and MCSports. No REI within 2 hours of me. Of course, if I had been thinking ahead at all, I could have ordered one. But such is life.
I took 2 funny post run pics of me with the headlamp on in the dark - one with and one without flash, but Blogger is being a butthead and not letting me load them into the post. Grr...figures when I try to improve my visual content - good old Murphy and his laws creep in. Will try to add it later.
