With the change in Daylight Savings Time, I'm now running in the dark after work. I'm not normally running in places with a lot of traffic, so when a car or bike comes up on me, I want to know they can see me. Some things like headlamps and red blinking lights help, but they aren't always as visible as you'd like them to be, especially if they are angled the wrong way. That's why I prefer reflective gear that picks up light from all directions and reflects back...making you much more obvious to a driver or cyclist. The problem is much of the reflective gear out there is ridiculously expensive, or if affordable looks like something you'd wear picking up litter along the roadside.
So I was pleased to find out about See-Me-Run. They offer a number of stylish reflective designs that you can iron onto your already-owned running clothes. I went with the Running Man (picture left). The hardest part about the whole thing was finding the iron buried in a long lost drawer. After that, the process was really easy.
