After 3 months of running from the "devil" in 90+ degree heat to train for the Chicago Marathon, fall has finally arrived. While I am beyond excited about running in cooler weather, now I have to worry about it getting gets darker earlier than in the summer. To prep for the early darkness, I am locating all my Brilliant Reflective strips (https://www.brilliantreflective.com/) to get my gear ready.
The strips are removable or permanent and can be used on belts, shirts, helmets, and pants. You can also used on backpacks and any other gear that you wear in the dark. The strips are durable and survived my 20 mile sweaty run. They are also reusable and can survive the washing machine.
To get a break from the summer heat, I used the strips on my clothes for early morning wake up runs. I am not a fan of running in the dark, but it was a much needed break from the scorching afternoon temperatures.
Every runner should have their reflective gear and lights ready for this fall season. Consider using Brilliant strips since they can be used on any article clothing. They can be also be stored in your car or gym bag for easy access. I have a few strips sticking to my car console so I can use them on my weekly runs. Just remember that if you blend in with the darkness, cars and other runners can't' see you. Don't leave your visibility to chance.
So are you fall ready? I know I am! Be safe and be seen!
