Dark Running

Afterfollowing my 1/2 marathon up with some runs for the last few weeks, I have been having such a hard time staying motivated to get out there.  I missed my long run yesterday.  This was because of the transition to later in the day runs because of the darkness factor. 
I am not stationary, and have been going to the gym twice a week lately as well as running, but my motivation to go out after work is really taking a hit.  I feel winter slumpsville.  How do you handle the change in season??
I have purchased equipment, all except a headlamp, which I will probably need, but do not really want to have to use.  Running in the dark is a HUGE barriere for me!  Anyone else feel that way?
