Tonight I’m staying over at my friend’s house, and 1) he is male; 2) he has a lovely trail around a lake (!) by his house so I talked him onto going for a run with me after it got dark.
And, my goodness, it was glorious! Beautiful weather, gorgeous setting around the lake, it was a little dark and I did step once off the trail and twist my ankle slightly but it was really nice overall! My friend got tired and his ankle hurt, and then we wound up chasing someone’s escaped dog? Bizarre but plenty fun. Running outside at night is so nice! I wish I could do this all the time, without a chaperone.
