Earlier this month, I wrote a post about running since the time change went into effect. Thus far I’ve been pretty successful in still heading outdoors to get my runs in. It helps that I have great running peeps that meet me out there. I’m guessing that if I had to go it alone at 5:30 AM, I would probably skip out and hit the snooze button. In that case I’d be much better acquainted with the treadmill (which again, I hate!).
Anyway, again, I’ve been managing to make it outdoors regardless of the dark mornings & nights, but it really started me thinking about the gear that I do and do not have. I really do not have a lot of bright colored, reflective running gear. It’s not something that I’ve had to purchase until now. So I started doing some research and of course I immediately saw dollar signs. I started trying to figure out just how I was going to buy all of this new reflective gear without breaking the bank.
That’s when I ran across Flash Brite. Check them out! From their website:
FlashBrite ™ stick-on patches are made of genuine 3M Scotchlite™ reflective material. They increase your visibility at night by reflecting light directly back to it’s source so you can be seen. FlashBrite ™is safety with style! Perfect for the whole family during evening strolls, a night run, dog walks and more! See how they work! Put them on everything! Jackets, Halloween Costumes, Backpacks, Strollers, Briefcases, Umbrellas, Bicycles, Motorcycles, Bike Helmets and More!
FlashBrite™ reflective products are not just stickers! They are designed for specific uses and can be customized for your application.
I was immediately sold on at least giving the product a try when I saw their low, low prices. I figured I could buy a few of their patches, put them on my running outer wear and my problem of what to purchase to run in would be solved. I quickly placed a small order. Less than a day later I had an email from the company thanking me for my purchase and asking how I heard about them. I responded and asked if they might be interested in donating some products for my blog readers. They agreed!
I wanted to give the products a try before I posted on the blog about them. Today, I finally had the opportunity to do just that. J and I went for an early morning run in the D-A-R-K. I can say that we both wore a Flash Brite patch and they worked great. Here are a few photos that I managed to snap at 5:30 AM.
Since Flash Brite was so gracious, for you I have the following:
I have two sets of three packages of Flash Brite reflective patches to giveaway. Both are pictured below.
