So, why did I decide to do the Firefly run? Running at night is usually not my thing. I like to run in the early AM before work, and on the few many occasions I missed my morning run I usually say I will make it up after work but never do. Since I don’t have time to drive somewhere nice to complete my AM runs, I usually end up doing the same loop around my neighborhood every morning, which is getting boring.
Last Friday, I came across the Firefly Run 5k Groupon. $55 for 2 entries to the run in Rahway at 7:30, which is the neighboring town to where Brian and I grew up. Entry was to include 2 LED wrist bands, a T shirt, and a “mystery gift”, plus the bonus of a change of scenery without having to worry about traffic… It sounded like a no brainer, and it would force me to get in a PM run where I otherwise likely wouldn’t have made the after work effort.
