The weather is getting cooler, which means Fall is upon us and it’s just the best time of year to get out and run. THIS SUNDAY November 5th is the daylight savings time change… – “Fall Back”. That means it will get darker earlier in the evening and will still be dark in the morning, too! As runners, we need to be thinking about Fall Safety. Our motto year ‘round, but especially for fall is ‘Be Safe & Be Seen’. And, there are an array of things you can do. Outside of wearing reflective gear (shoes and apparel), you can find other sources to help you “light up the night”. Headlamps and other lights and true reflective night apparel (vests/shirts) are truly a must. Drivers are more distracted than ever – so protect yourself!
To help get us ready for the ‘fall back’ week coming up –
All week long at the store we will have “Light Up” specials – up to 20% off your favorite “be safe/be seen” products.
We also have visibility specials going on to get you ready for the brighten up the night event and keep you safe this fall. Get 10-20% off on lights, bright apparel, and more! Come into the store to check it out. We will have surprises for you all week long! AND, you can enter to win one of our great prizes.
