One of the greatest partnerships that we’ve created over the years is with the Vicki Soto Foundation. Each year, in early November, there is a 5k honoring this teacher at Sandyhook Elementary who took the most courageous steps in saving her young student’s lives.
Hood to Coast 2019 - in the books! Notes from the man at the helm - what a race it was. Thanks to all who ran, encouraged, volunteered and helped make our first Knuckle Lights team such a success!
Ross was running one Saturday morning and saw a fellow runner with a pair of Knuckle Lights - he knew at that moment he had to have a pair! He also wears reflective clothing when running at night and his wife and him both use Knuckle Lights when walking the dog.
Becky discovered Knuckle Lights in the summer of 2016 when she was training for her first marathon. The majority of her workouts were beginning at 4.45am to beat the heat and make time for herself! In addition to Knuckle Lights, Becky also invites friends to join her on her pre-sunrise workouts for encouragement and a bit of added safety.
For Brian, working retail and having 3 kids, he sometimes has to run when it’s dark out. He discovered Knuckle Lights at his local running store and they have enabled him to get his run in regardless of the time of day.
Wendi started running later in life, at the age of 40. It was actually her husband that got her into is as she was jealous about how many friends he was making and the distances he was conquering through running and training!
As he started to train, Craig found that he preferred to run after work, thus, in the dark. He found that holding a flashlight was rather annoying and then he saw a fellow runner post on Instagram holding a pair of Knuckle Lights and he thought they looked cool. He’s been using them and telling runners about them ever since.
Josh began running his senior year in college and hasn’t looked back since! He was inspired by his father, an 8 time marathoner, and has run 11 marathons, 1 ultramarathon and just completed Boston 2019! He finished that epic race in 2:39:27 - that’s an average pace of 6:05 per mile!!
Anna Louise Kallas started running in 2012 with a girls getaway to Walt Disney World for leap day. She was standing in line, at 2am, in the Magic Kingdom when she heard a group of women chatting about their plans to run the Princess Half Marathon. Anna decided to approach the group and learn more! As soon as she returned home she found a local running group, then later a women’s training group for a 5k, and the rest, they say, is history!
