Notice the dark background... Most environments are much busier than this. Even with the reflective gear it can be very difficult to see a pedestrian at night. (Image from myprrun.com) Ever since daylight savings kicked in my commute home from work has been in the dark. Lately I've been noticing a significant number of people out and about... running... walking... and on their bikes.  Some of these individuals were doing everything they were supposed to be doing.

This is a bit late... Sorry. Here at VTRunCo we want to support the running community in anyway we can, and one of the things we are hoping to do more of are race reports and videos from events here in Vermont.
