Yesterday marked the first day of Fall, and Mother Nature apparently wanted everyone to know with the cooler, Fall-like temperatures we are experiencing here in Richmond. The beginning of Fall brings up a few important discussion points when it comes to running and exercising.
We've mentioned the importance of reflectivity in previous posts, but it really cannot be stressed enough. With shorter daylight hours, reflectivity is a must on your run or walk. Here at Fleet Feet, we carry Nathan reflective products, and they've just released a new collection of reflectivity called Black Light. These products are uber-reflective and are visible from far distances. When running in the dark, it's important to not only wear passive light, or reflectivity, but also blinking lights that can be seen before headlights reach you. Additionally, our Fall apparel from Brooks and Saucony has elements of reflectivity. In case you're thinking that just wearing a white shirt is enough, it's not. Check out this video from Nathan about reflectivity.
