First up - See and Be Seen tips from Fleet Feet:
While the days are getting longer, many of us are still running in the dark. As fun as it may be to channel your inner running ninja and blend in with the darkness, the wise runner dresses more like a Christmas tree so they can SEE and BE SEEN.
This means bringing along a light source like a flashlight or headlamp so you can SEE those bumps in the road/sidewalk and wearing reflective gear and flashing lights so you can BE SEEN by drivers. Bright colors are helpful in low light conditions, but always make sure that your top and bottom have reflective taping or details & wear a flashing light (or three!). Even a small reflective element can produce a significant "flash" to get a driver's attention when their headlights shine on you.
Here are a few of our favorite products:
Amphipod Xinglet (reflective vest) & Flashing LED Reflectors
Nathan Strobe Light
Nike Flash Jacket
Running stores around the country have pledged to bring attention to the issue in an effort to reduce the number of pedestrians who are killed each year because drivers didn't see them. Don't become a statistic. Switch on your run or walk and be safe. You too dog walkers!
