ShoutOut: Do You Work Out in the Dark?

Earlier this week, FBG Kristen reviewed a new shirt that helps you to be seen when working out when the sun is down. Now that the weather is getting hot, hot, hot, I’ve been hitting the running trails a little earlier in the mornings and a little later in the evenings to take advantage of lower temps. But safety is always a big concern of mine. Am I wearing clothes that can be seen? Am I aware of my surroundings? Is the volume in my ear buds too loud for me to hear a car—or a creepo—if it comes up behind me? There’s a lot to be aware of! Tell us, do you head out to work out when the sun goes down?

    I like to work out in partial sun-early morning at dawn, or late evening at dusk. I still try to wear clothes that help me be seen, like a white, or bright orange shirt; I try to keep my MP3 level down a little, be aware of my surroundings, and I take pepper spray with me because we have stray dog issues in my neighborhood. I have been chased off my course before! For an added measure of security, my husband used to require me to take my cell phone as well. Now, I have an MP3 in my phone. If it’s just too dark, I pop in a video or Wii Fit.
