The Appeal of Running Into The Dark

Running into the dark offers a unique and exhilarating experience that traditional daytime running cannot match. The absence of light heightens your senses, making every step and every breath more intense. Your surroundings become more mysterious, giving you a sense of adventure and exploration. The anticipation of not knowing what lies ahead adds an element of thrill that keeps runners coming back for more.

Challenges and Precautions

While running into the dark can be an immensely fulfilling experience, it is essential to take certain precautions to ensure your safety. Here are some challenges you may encounter and the necessary steps to overcome them:

1. Limited Visibility

Running in the dark poses challenges due to limited visibility. To overcome this, invest in high-quality headlamps or wearable lights that illuminate your path. These lights not only help you see what's in front but also make you visible to others, enhancing your safety.

2. Uneven Terrain

With limited visibility, uneven terrain can become a significant obstacle. To overcome this challenge, choose running shoes with excellent traction and stability. Additionally, regular practice and incremental progress can help improve your balance and coordination.

3. Safety in Numbers

Running into the dark alone can be risky. It is always advisable to run with a group of like-minded individuals or join a local running club. Not only does this provide an added sense of security, but it also enhances the overall experience by fostering camaraderie and support.

The Psychological Impact

Running into the dark goes beyond the physical challenge; it also affects your mental well-being. Some runners claim that the solitude and detachment from the distractions of the day help clear their minds and bring a sense of peace and tranquility. Others find the adrenaline rush and heightened awareness to be a powerful stress-reliever and mood-enhancer.

Choosing the Right Location

The location you choose for running into the dark can greatly influence your experience. Look for trails or routes that offer a scenic and enchanting atmosphere. Forests, mountains, and coastal paths are popular choices as they provide a captivating backdrop for your adventurous run. Research local parks or nature reserves in your area to find the perfect setting for your next escapade.

It offers a unique blend of excitement, fear, and fulfillment that cannot be replicated elsewhere. So, lace up your running shoes, grab a headlamp, and embark on an adventure that will leave you breathless, both figuratively and literally. The dark awaits.

A man takes on the challenge of a lifetime after hitting rock bottom. He finds himself divorced, unemployed and in a deep depression when a degenerative eye condition renders him blind with limited light perception. Feeling a calling to run across America, he dedicated the next two years of his life to prepare for, and ultimately run, over 3,000 miles from California to New York in less than 60 days, averaging 51.5 miles per day, to log the 7th fastest transcontinental foot crossing in the history of the world - less than 300 people have crossed America on foot. It was, and remains the only transcontinental foot-crossing by a blind person.

This is not just a book about running. This is a story of success and failure, healing and hurting, and loss and love. It is a book about struggling with adversity, learning to not give up or give in, to accept one's self for all that one is, and is not. It is every person's story.

Running into the Dark is a manifesto about how to continue ONWARD.

Jason Romero is a highly sought after Keynote Speaker for conventions, conferences and commencements, a US Paralympian who was 4th in the world at the Paralympic World Marathon Championships in 2015, a holder of 13 world records in ultra-running, the subject of a full length documentary and an author. In addition, Jason has been an attorney, an executive at GE and a CEO of a non-profit that helps children with Autism.

“As the first blind person to run from California to New York, Jason has quite the story to tell, and he does so eloquently and passionately....” — Jim Browning (COO, Goodwill Industries)

“Jason motivated me and the audience to reach deep within ourselves to ‘go the extra mile’ and to improve our lives and the lives of others.” — Mark Lucas (CEO, US Association of Blind Athletes)

“Jason is, first and foremost, a man of high integrity and true compassion. He's smart, educated, accomplished and a great father. He's a motivating role model for many.” — Scott Burt (CEO, Integro)

“Jason Romero has one of the most remarkable stories you will ever hear. Running across the United States in 60 consecutive days is only the starting point.” — Michael Kragt, Ph.D (Executive Director, Grace Counseling)
