You think you could maybe add "dark" for weather conditions, when we are either running at night or the ass crack before dawn?

Just wear really dark glasses during you day hour runs so that all your runs are in darkness.

Dark isn't a weather condition. I think you'll cover dark by using night for the time of day. I'm pretty sure its dark at night no matter where in the world you are.

Negative. There are some places where it is dark all day long and light all day long.

Yeah, how do you define this alleged word "night"?

Wow, this turned into a weird conversation for a simple request, lol.

I think darkness is a weather condition. What if you only ran one mile, and it just happened to be during a lunar eclipse? Hmm? Exactly.

And I just don't know what to put when I do a night run for that. I'm just being a little picky.

I think we should continue this forum..but argue with eachother until we can completely agree on a set time for the different time of days for runs. A lot of my teammates have r2w, and we were all arguing once about what times Morning, Afternoon, Evening, and Night are considered.

The biggest issues are the time differences for morning and afternoon

So for instance, we could say that you're doing a ____ run if the hour of the day falls between ___ and ___!

SAMPLE: Morning 6am -11: 30am
Afternoon 11:31 am - 4:45 pm
Evening 4:46pm - 7:30pm
Night 7:31 pm - 5:59 am


Add changes to this as you will

4:45am-11:59am morning
12pm-5:59pm afternoon
6pm-9:59pm evening
10pm-4:44am night

Go from when your run starts. So, lets say you ran 1 hour beginning at 11:40am. Even though you ran 2/3 in the afternoon, it shall be classified as a morning run.

it might be. there's a dozen different man-law groups and i didn't feel like reading through all of them, but i'm sure that it would be logical to have that one on there somewhere. if not, i'm going to join one and add it in there

Alaska gets daylight and darkness.

On the summer solstice (21 June) Alaska and all areas at and above the Arctic Circle (66.5 degrees North) have 24 hours of light. On the winter solstice (21 December) they have zero hours of sunlight.

21 March and 21 September they have exactly 12 hours of sunlight.

First of all, afternoon encompasses time after noon o'clock. So not 11:31am. If TPIR is still on, it's not afternoon.

Second, you need a distinction for evening. I feel that afternoon falls between 12 and 6, evening from 6-9, night from 9-12. "Morning" then starts at 12:01 am. We should call it "wet time". Then from about 3-5 is pre-morning or pre-dawn. Then from 5am on it's morning.

In college there were people that had to work the desks at the dorms, in 3 hour shifts. I always felt 6-9am was doable. Sucked, but doable. Same with 12-3am, because a lot of kids can stay up that late. 3-6am was the worst. I would see them when I left for morning runs and 90% of the time they'd be asleep, face down on the desk.

I agree with:

afternoon from 12p-6p
evening 6p-9p
night beginning at 9pm
----------------

My problem comes with the classification of 12am as 'morning'.

Would you say, "Last morning we got so drunk."? (referring to drinking at 2am)
In your break down.. it would be classified as "Last wet time we got so drunk". Would you say that?
No. You would say, "Last night we go so drunk!".
--------
You have morning starting at 5am. I used 4:45am as the beginning of morning. So I can agree with this. I like to use 4:45am as the starting point, because some people wake up at 4:45am on an everyday basis. Very few people will plan on waking up at 3am on a regular basis.
------------
Therefore, I say that night should go from 9p into the anti meridian ended at 4:45. Though, I am open to having it extend until 5am

Also, I guess if your mobile phone minutes start "nights" at 9 that's one thing, BUT some can start at 7. So your definition may be predicated by your cellular provider.

I have a geography minor against my will.. might as well make use out of it.

Fact. Tokyo will suffer a catastrophic earthquake sometime in the future. Tokyo is built on top of three tectonic plates: The Philippine Sea plate, the Pacific plate, and the Eurasian plate. Scientists don't know when it will happen.. but it is inevitable.

The tectonic plates below Tokyo are different from the ones in California. The plates there grind against each other sideways. In Tokyo, the three dip below each other. Therefore, there is technically an earthquake every single week in Tokyo -- just that the effects are negligible. But when 'The Big One' occurs.. it wouldn't be suprising to see over a million people die.

And this pertinent discussion about earth shattering events leads into my argument for timing of the day. Morning is to be defined as the time from when you wake up to when you eat lunch. After lunch it is afternoon until you eat dinner. After dinner it is evening until the sunsets. Once the sunsets it is night until you go to sleep. Once you wake up it is morning again. Perfectly logical - in my world. Note: Don't skip lunch or it will be morning all day long.

Is it really "dark" if you can see the stars?
