So, you love to run at night huh? Running at night provides us with a myriad of wonderful benefits. Most of us have more time in the evenings to get our workout in. The dark provides us with cooler temperatures, and it can be a truly beautiful and tranquil place to get lost in. But, if you're going to run in the dark, it's going to be difficult to see anything including you, which means you need some top-notch safety gear for your evening run protection.
