Have you noticed that it’s getting darker in the mornings?
Have you also noticed that your old lighting systems might be in need of an upgrade? If so, Wilderness Running Company is having a Black Diamond Bonanza right now just for you.
The short version is, from now to October 19th, all BD lights are on sale for 25% off. As always, if you use my customary coupon code R&R10, you’ll get an additional 10% off. And if your total purchase is over $50, you get free shipping as well. You'll have a hard time finding a better deal than that.
If you want the long versions, I can help there as well, because I’ve already reviewed all of these items for you. So if you’re interested, the reviews are linked below, with a short update blurb about each
Black Diamond Spot : I called this the most affordable high-quality lamp available last year, and that was BEFORE they upgraded the lumen capacity from 47 to 60. Your best value by far for basic lighting needs.
Black Diamond Sprinter : The best combination of safety, illumination, and lightweight construction on the market. This is a must for frequent road runners, and best of all, its rechargeable battery makes it very green.
Black Diamond Icon : True story: when I paced Gretchen through the night at Tahoe this summer, I wore the Icon on my head and carried a handheld light. About five hours into the night, I turned off my handheld to see if there was any difference … and I never used it again. The Icon was bright enough to flood out my handheld, and held its charge through the night with no problems whatsoever.
Black Diamond NRG battery pack (see Icon review): I use this all the time in my Icon. It’s lightweight, convenient, super-strong, and Earth-friendly; what more can you ask for?
Remember to use code R&R10 for another 10% off. Prices are good until October 19th.
And since it’s the weekend, here’s your Random Shot of Beauty
Daybreak in Fort Ord, taken just above the fog line and approximately 15 miles into my final long training run before last weekend's Firetrails 50M. Coincidentally, I used a Black Diamond lamp to get me there.
