I love to run at night – it’s peaceful.
My wife worries when I do though, and prefers me to run in the day light hours or with bright colored clothing.
Despite the best intentions, people can still make bad choices. One time, I was at a cross walk, just blocks from home late one evening. The roads were almost empty, but I waited at the cross walk all the same. When the “Walk” signal illuminated, beckoning me across 5 lanes of two way traffic lanes, I heard an engine race.
It was a car approaching the intersection without an ounce of hesitation in the hum of the motor. The driver blasted through the red light, and across my lane of travel. If I had had headphones in, or was any more tired than I had been – I would not be here typing this now.
It arrived in a nifty tin, with a large rubber wristband that you cut to size yourself. A few test fits and cuts later, and I was ready to go.
It’s comfortable and the wears well. The rubber wristband, however, does not stretch with wear, so make sure you know your fit when you trim it to length.
The clasp is extremely well made, and the material is high quality. I would say I am pleased with the purchase.
Of all the gear I have gotten for my running, this is one item I hope never sees use.
Regardless, I will keep it on.
