A week after Manitou pre-race night run, I felt that I needed to train my night vision capability. So Chang and I planned to do a night run on Friday night after work. That day, it had been raining all day, and we had an all out thunderstorm the whole afternoon. It was a full package of pouring rain, lighting and thunder overlapping one after another. But by 7:30 pm it died down. So we decided that the night run was on.
We started to run by 10 pm. It was a pitch dark, but the sky was decorated by a full golden moon with starry stars around it. It was slippery, water on the trail or more like we were running on a stream, and we got fogs in some places. Also I heard an animal growling that sounded like a bear, and better yet a half mile away from the parking lot at the end of the run, there were a pair of eyes that was following us for a few minutes. But it was a good run and we were all come back alive.
