Yesterday, my swag arrived.
Road ID Gift Certificate: I ordered a pink Wrist ID Elite (interactive) and a Firefly Belt. I’m super excited to receive both. I will feel a lot safer on night runs with both of these. The nice folks of RoadID also threw in a hat (which also has reflective stripes) and socks.
Two pairs of Ryder Sunglasses (front) VTX and (back) Grindhouse. Ryders have polarized lenses with a Horizontal Glare Reflective (HRG) filter encased inside the lens to block over 99% of the glare from water, rock, pavement and other reflective surfaces. They also have great anti-slip nose pads.
Last (but not least), a ton of GU was included in Vanilla Gingerbread, Mint Chocolate and Vanilla Bean flavors. I haven’t ever tried GU, but I’m starting my long runs at the end of January and early February so I’ll be giving it a try soon.
I’m hoping the weather stays snow-free here in DC so I can go out and do my 7 miler on Sunday.
Do you have any big exercise plans for the weekend? How do you ensure safety when running after dark?
