Meg Runs has a great post today about running at night.
She calls our band of nighttime runners Vampires and I love it.
I’m a vampire!
I mean, I’ve always been a fan of Vampires. Starting way back in my fanatical Ann Rice days and on through to True Blood and Twilight.
Who knew all I needed to do is take up running and then do it at night to be part of this elite community.
Meg’s post makes a really good point…reflection. For safety’s sake we need to wear lots of things that bounce light back into the sightline of approaching drivers. Especially since I run in the street.
This is pretty but a little pricey at $135 – it’s made by Stridelight
I have a very nice reflective anklet that I wear purchased from REI for the low low price of $3.00
I do need to invest in a reflective vest though. Such a simple piece of equipment that should increase my chances of getting home safe and sound.
So go check out Meg’s blog…she’s a peach and a runner. A peachy runner.
