Fall is in the air! Someone tell me how it is September already?! Time sure flies. Maybe it is the little kids or the busy days, but I swear, just yesterday, I was dating things 2012.
But the problem with fall is that sunrise happens later and later and the 5:30 a.m. run that seems like a great idea in the summer becomes a not so safe idea. It is DARK at 5:30 a.m. these days and will only get darker. So what is a girl to do?

You can pick flash or non flash LED lights and you can be seen up to a 1/4 mile away. So now, the only dangerous thing about me running at 5 or 5:30 a.m. is my BRF grumbling about how early it is!
This is the arm band all lighted up.
I think the arm sleeves look pretty good too! Both would be awesome for middle of the night runs in a Ragnar relay race! They even have cycling jerseys!
I bet SD Dad would love that! Here is my armband:
