This evening I test ran my new Decathlon run light. Here, as promised, is my beginners review. A strange experience. Firstly it was cold so getting ready to run after driving home from work is a mental hurdle. Then going out on my own in the dark. Don't get me wrong I'm not scared of the dark but with half the street lights out it's a bit dark in our village. Off I went and immediately started wondering if I'd ever get used to the bouncing light effect and the shadow of a jabbing boxer. But quite soon I was loving it. I could see really well even when I ran for about 500m with no other lights. It's easy to wear, really light weight, bright and simple to use. I'm sold- worth every penny.
But I messed up my timing by accidentally pausing Mapmyrun. I believe it was my best run ever and I felt great when I got home.
