Running in the dark

It’s sad to say it, but summer is over. With the change of season comes much shorter days. Therefore, if you run in the morning and/or evening you are probably noticing how dark it is compared to a few weeks ago.

As I said in a previous post, I run home from work and have already noticed how dark it is compared to last month. In order keep safe while running in the dark, I stronger suggest that you consider buying reflective gear that allows drivers to see you. There are so many horrible stories of runners getting hit by drivers who simply did not see them.

Fortunately, there are a number of options for reflective running gear. You can buy: an ankle band, a wrist band, a vest, a clip-on L.E.D. light, a headlamp or my favorite, the Xinglet.

Whatever you choose, make sure that that drivers can see you. Best of luck with your early morning or night time running.
