Be Aware. Be Bold. Be Seen!

By now you already know that Daylight Saving Time ended and you've adjusted your clocks back one hour. For those of you driving in the late afternoon or early evening, you now have less or no sunlight. If you're running after work, you're definitely running in the dark. So this is a great time to remind everyone to be alert, be bold, and be seen.
 
Be Aware of your surroundings and make sure that if you're wearing headphones that you are still able to hear your surroundings. (Come in and demo Aftershokz headphones that don't cover your ears.) including approaching vehicles.  Make sure you're running against traffic so you can see oncoming vehicles. Use a headlamp or flashlight to see the surface you're running on. Don't twist an ankle or trip on a cracked sidewalk. Be Bold by wearing bright colors, including neon or fluorescent colors so you're more visible. Limit wearing all black.  Be Seen with a reflective vest or clothing with reflective elements so that vehicles can see you from a distance. Additional blinking lights will also make you more visible to vehicles from distance. Want to learn more? Read this article or come into your nearest Big Peach Running Co. location and we'll help you stay safe while you run.
