Stay Safe Out There! Road Running in the Winter
Hey Runners! Daylight becomes a rare commodity as fall and winter descend on Northwest Indiana. After beating the heat with early-morning runs all summer, for the next few months runners will be hard-pressed to find a time to run with sunlight. Don’t hope that drivers will be looking out for you, make yourselves seen! The RRCA advises runners to wear reflective material when running before dawn or after dusk. Make yourself as visible as possible by wearing several points of light and a combination of reflective material and LED lights. At the Extra Mile we carry everything you need to be seen: reflective jackets and vests; LED light spurs from Nathan; and flashing and strobe light clip-ons.
