Reflective Running Gear

Posted on

Today I wanted to talk about a running gear trend that I first noticed during the winter: reflective running gear. During winter there is noticeably less daylight, which forces many of us to run while it’s dark outside. My schedule is still pretty flexible so I didn’t have to deal with that. However, as the weather warms I take up night running more often. I am not a heat runner! On days where the temperatures reach 90 and above, I either skip my run or wait until the sun goes down.

Running night can be dangerous if you aren’t wearing gear that will get you noticed by oncoming cars. I know I’m not the only person who hides from the sun during summer! So I’ve decided to share some great reflective gear with all of you:

If you are a night runner, make sure to incorporate some type of reflective gear. Something as simple as a headband can ensure drivers notice you. Safe running!

    Thanks for some fun gear to check out. I would also like to point out that it’s not only important to wear bright (and reflective) colors when running outside, particularly at dark, but also to run against traffic!! Huge pet peeve of mine that makes me want to run off course to tell people to switch sides! Safety first!!

      You’re completely right Kat. I see that pretty often and it is so dangerous!!
