Headlamps for running
Last night's run brings me to this. I discovered a route that is nice and quiet, but not very well lit. I did have Lordie with me, but still. I felt a bit uncomfortable being out there - pretty much all alone. Plus, that route was pretty bumpy. Bumpy road + clumsy me + not very well lit = accident waiting to happen.
It's pretty obvious that I'll need a headlamp for this one. A headlamp wouldn't be such a bad idea anyway, considering all the late night and early morning running I've been doing. So, a headlamp it is. Silly me figured I could just go into a running store and there would be headlamps all over the place. Nope, apparently that's not the case. Naturally I hit the internet and googled for running headlamps.
Halle-bleepin-lujah! I had no idea that there were actually so many picks in headlamps. And they have all these different features and price ranges (ouch!). Petzl and Black Diamond seem to have a wide variety of headlamps and several price ranges. After googling a bit and some advice from kick ass trail runners, I'm looking into the Petzl Tikka and the Petzl Myolite at the moment. As soon as I found a headlamp that suits my needs, I'll put up a review on the lamp.

Do you run with a headlamp? If so, what would be your pick?
On a different note: I discovered the joy of Dailymile and am using their website for my work out stats. Therefore, I will no longer be posting my work outs in my blog posts. :) You can just click on the Dailymile stat on my blog and track what I'm doing. ;)
