Runners Safety

Have you ever been running down the road, when you hear someone shout from a car window? When a car slows down behind you? Where you see the same car pass you more than three times? When a car beeps at you for what seems to be no reason? When a dog chases after you?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this post is for you!

Running safety is of utmost importance to ensure a quality run. Over the course of the year, I have collected some tips and gadgets for running safety. 

Simple tricks to follow:

  1. Always switch up your running course. If you are someone who runs the same course every day, try running the course in the opposite direction. Better yet, run a different route at least two times a week, to eliminate consistency. 
  2. Make sure to tell a family member or friend when you’re running and your intended route. This allows others to know where you will be and when, incase anything is to happen. 
  3. If you run with headphones, and listen to music or a podcast, wear one ear bud, or keep the volume low, to ensure you can hear what is going on around you. 
  4. Switch up the time of day that you run. If you are always running at a different time of the day, no one will be able to peg which time of day you are going for your run. For some, I know this is not possible, but always carry with you a runners safety device.
  5. Turn your head around when you hear a car approaching behind you. It may sounds silly, but it shows the driver that you are paying attention and will not be caught off guard. 
  6. Run in groups.
  7. Never ignore your instincts. If you do not feel right about a running situation, forgo it. Your gut is never wrong. 

Runner’s Safety Watch:

  1. Apple Watch. The number one reason I love my Apple Watch is due to the safety features. With the watch, I am able to share my location with my husband. I always share with him my route prior to running, and he can make sure that when I run, I am staying on the course.
    1. The cellular plan on the Apple Watch has a lot to offer. If I feel uneasy about a situation, I can make the necessary phone calls, before it is too late. There is no worrying about getting a cellphone out, wasting time entering your phone passcode, or making it transparent to someone you are making a call. Simplicity is my style. 
    2. The Fall Detection on the Apple Watch initiates the Emergency SOS. If you were to have a hard fall, and were unable to move, the Apple Watch calls emergency services for you.
