If you ever run in the dark (which most of us do at least occasionally due to daylight savings) a running headlamp is a good investment. Even if you can see well enough to put one foot in front of the other, wearing a headlamp in the dawn or dusk hours helps cars, bikes, and even dog walkers see you better.
My recommendation: Petzl makes headlamps that work well for runners; they are lightwight and easy to wear over a mesh running cap in warm weather or a winter hat or earband when it's chilly. Check some out at www.petzl.com
