Welcome RunLites back to #RunChat

We're excited to have RunLites back at this week's #RunChat, which kicks off at 10 p.m. ET Sunday, Oct. 1. (Go give them a follow on Twitter and check the end of this post on how to enter to win!) 

RunLites are exactly as they sound -- they're lights you run while running. The lightweight gloves, or a lightweight Sling, have a LED light pouch so you can easily wear your lights to be seen AND to see where you are going. 

The RunLites LED lights -- which are sold separately from the gloves -- are rechargeable, so there's no need to constantly buy batteries. 

RunLites tells us that people love how lightweight the gloves are, how bright the lights are, and how they help people feel safer on a run. 

As part of this week's #RunChat, we'll have an amazing discount code -- RCHAT25 -- for you to grab a pair of RunLites at gorunlites.com for 25% off as well as the chance for you to enter to win a pair!
