It's time, once again, to kick off my 26.2 with DONNA Fundraising, and what better time than Breast Cancer Awareness Month? This will be my 10th year -- wow -- participating in this event, and, aside from bringing attention to a great cause, the awesome crowd support, and the amazing feeling of a block party in motion, it's easy to see why:

Happy Fall, y’all! We are now entering my favorite time of the year. No, not because of the changing leaves, approaching holiday season or any of the other more traditional reasons non-Floridians give for welcoming Fall. For me, it’s the less sweltering temperatures and slight drop in humidity that makes running, cycling, and even walking, more bearable. Of course, along with these "cooler" temps come shorter days/daylight hours which can leave an evening athlete in the dark.

As an early morning runner, I understand all too well the struggle of trying to balance high visibility with comfort — who knew clip-on lights bounced so much and headlamps caused headaches? — and I recently found the answer: Noxgear. Now, I had seen/heard of Noxgear a while back through the Jacksonville Galloway Training Group I was a member of, but, for some reason, I hadn’t actually tried it until several months ago. What first got my attention was the variety of colors available, but what I didn’t know was that, not only is each Tracer360 vest capable of producing 8 different colors (I usually select a color that matches my shirt), but you can also change from solid to flashing lights with a just a press of a button!

I’ve received numerous compliments and inquiries since I started wearing my Tracer360, and now, I want to share Noxgear with you! As of today, I am a member of the Noxgear Ambassador -- #noxgearamb -- family. What exactly does that mean to you? Well, by using coupon code: KayDub978 on the Noxgear website, you will save 35%. :in announcer voice: But, wait, there's more! On Tuesday October 16th only, the coupon code discount will be increased to 42%! 

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, there is also a visibility vest for our canine friends. After all, their safety is important too. Stay safe out there!
