I rarely run when it is dark. During the summer it is bright as early as 5am and doesn’t get dark till about 8:30pm. The few times I run while it is dark, I wear a reflective vest and a headlamp. I was more than happy to test and review Brilliant Reflective Safety Strips. The company sent me both Iron-On and Stick-On strips.
So what exactly are these strips? They’re pieces of tape that you can stick on to your gear so that when light hits you, you are seen. They’re easy to peel and can be placed on pretty much all of your running gear such as shoes, shirts, hats. They’re available in black, red, blue, and purple so they either blend in or stand out.
My niece liked them on her shoes.
I used them in my shirt, shoes, and running hat.
I will admit that I removed them from my shoes to put on another pair and somehow one of the strips fell off during my race. However, they stayed on the shirts even after washing them.
I haven’t used the Iron-On strips but am excited to use them on my Oiselle Power Stretch Beanie and Softshell Gloves. <<Definitely not ready for cold weather as I am enjoying the cool and fall like weather we are having in Chicago.

My latest running song is “Mi Gente”. Have you heard it? Not a big fan of the video but I do like the beat and it makes me want to dance too. 🙂
I had some great runs this week. Monday and Tuesday was 5.02 miles. Fall weather is here and that makes the runs much more enjoyable. I was pleased and surprised with my negative splits!
On Saturday I ran the Run Mag Mile 10K. It was so much fun! The weather was perfect and it was fun running down Michigan Avenue (it reminded me of RnR Las Vegas when the strip was closed for the race). I didn’t get a PR (old one is from 2010) but I ran faster than I thought I could and also had a blast. I think that definitely counts more than a PR, right? 🙂
So what did you think of the song “Mi Gente”? What is your favorite running song now?
