Repair, replace or ride?

Came home from a nice short 15 Miler last night and noticed a cut in my tread. Doesn't seem to be leaking, but these tires are fairly thin and light. Should I repair, replace or just ride? Just replaced these not long ago (less than 150 miles)

and I'm loathe to replace a tire so quickly

I say get some superglue in there (to prevent punctures) and ride.

Boot it with a piece of 1/32" reinforced gasket material.
super glue it in place and cover with duct tape.
