With a new product release and further updates to our rechargeable lights...well, we fell a bit behind in properly announcing our 2019 Bright Light Brigade Ambassadors! In the coming weeks you will be learning more about our great new team of brand fans! In the meantime, here's a little taster of who's who and what makes our newest ambassadors so bright:
Running is part of her life. It’s not a habit anymore; it’s a lifestyle. Due to the fact that the only time she has to run is 5am, she looks forward to the solitude and ‘head-space’. Because Lee runs almost entirely in the dark, Knuckle Lights are a good fit. She doesn’t like carrying things when she runs and and appreciates having her hands free to hit a crosswalk light or adjust a waistband.
Cheryl started running after losing some weight and feeling more fit in August of 2013. She went to her local gym, ran 3 miles on the treadmill and has never looked back. She also finds that running helps with stress and greatly improves her mood - she is just much happier after a run! Knuckle Lights are ideal for Cheryl as they highlight the direct route in front of her without causing her to have to look down.
Jason appreciates that Knuckle Lights help to keep him safe as he has 3 little ones that he always wants to get back, safely, to. Due to his schedule (5am-7pm) the only time Jason has to run is when it’s dark, so he owns the night with Knuckle Lights and reflective bright running clothing.
Jeremy started running at age 35 to lose weight and to keep up with his active son. For every mile that Jeremy runs, he donates $1 to the Lucas Fund (www.forlucas.com), in memory of his first son who passed away shortly after he was born. Jeremy prefers Knuckle Lights to other illuminated night running gear as he appreciates the freedom to aim the light where he wants to without having to shine it where it’s not needed or, even worse, straight into an oncoming driver’s eyes!
Kimberly’s love of running began almost 13 years ago. She didn’t do it primarily to lose weight, but she definitely wanted to tone up and do something that made her feel good about, and for, herself. She loves her Knuckle Lights for their functionality and convenience and also wears bright, reflective clothing to stay extra bright and visible.
Running has helped Kevin lose over 80 lbs and has helped to save him and provide the challenges that he thrives for. Knuckle Lights also help Kevin get through his runs in the dark. He appreciates the safety precaution and injury prevention - he wants others to see me as he is running! Kevin is a great inspiration to get out, stay motivated and push your preconceived limits.
Kaylene was always into athletics but was definitely NOT into running! It wasn’t until 2012 that she decided to give it a whirl. She set a goal to work up to running a 5k, but it was harder than she imagined. All the hard work paid off as she achieved her initial goal and within three years had run several half marathons and her first full marathon! Her Knuckle Lights also help as she loves to run in the early morning!
Michael has always been active. Running was surely something that was quite different to what he was accustomed to, but he loved it! Michael just recently finished his 145th race and is slowly transitioning from road to trail race. He finds Knuckle Lights easy to run with and recently used them at the 2017 Rock’n’Roll Las Vegas 10K. During this race Michael received plenty of compliments as part of the race course was pitch black!
Jessica started running in February of 2015 as a stress reliever after the birth of her second son. She initially had the idea that runners were a bit crazy and she had asthma...so, she thought: “there’s no way I could do that!” But, in a moment of madness, she stepped on a treadmill and has since never looked back! Jessica wore a headlamp for many years but her head would hurt all day and she’d be left with a red mark on her forehead! She appreciates that Knuckle Lights are bright and easy to wear, don’t alter her outfit or leave her with a prominent mark on her head!
Pamela started running in college. Her father had inspired her as he ran multiple marathons and road races when she was growing up. The ladies that Pamela runs with are pivotal in keeping her honest and motivated to get out of bed and hit the pavement. This running community offers her an outlet and reliable confidantes. She uses her Knuckle Lights to remain safe, and with this greater sense of safety, knows they help to motivate as well!
Patricia started running in 2012 after the birth of her daughter. She had put on a bit of baby weight and was looking for a way to lose it when her husband found a Couch to 5K they could complete as a family! Her children are a great motivator for her as they are part of her training regime and her daughter just finished her own first 5k!! She uses Knuckle Lights to feel safe and stay seen. On one run, another runner approaching her thought she was a car on the sidewalk!
Although Erin never ran in High School, she participated in three varsity sports, so running was always, in one way or another, a part of her day. Erin started by doing Ragnar Relays and has since completed 11! She loves the team dynamic, the laughs, the night runs and the exhilarated exhaustion! With Knuckle Lights she can easily shine the light where she needs without having to change the direction of her body or head. She feels much safer knowing she is visible and in control of her safety.
