New running gear!

Christmas presents mean new running gear! I'm running the Ragnar Relay in Florida in February and one of the requirements is that you have to have a reflective vest for each participant AND when you're running one of the "night" legs (4:30pm - 7:30am) you can't wear headphones. So what's the solution? A reflective vest that has speakers built in! RoadNoise makes these vests in 3 colors (pink, green and black) and multiple sizes. I haven't tested mine on a run yet, but I did try out the speakers and it definitely seems like the perfect setup.  Another handy item for my runs through the middle of nowhere (or even through the city) is my new RoadID bracelet with all my important contact information on it. I rarely take any form of identification with me, other than what could be found on my cell phone, so this is a handy little bracelet that will be very helpful if I ever get hurt or incapacitated in some way while I'm out running. I even got 5 different colors bands to rotate. Also under the tree was a box of GU (strawberry-banana flavor) and some chia seeds. I know that chia seeds are supposed to be good to mix into smoothies, but I'm not entirely sure how else to use them, so I'm open to any suggestions!
Were there any running related presents under your tree?
