It can happen to anyone - Safe Running Tale

Tuesday, November 27, 2012


This just happened. And it has a reasonably happy ending. But yes, it can happen to anyone anywhere.

I still believe that my 90-lb GSD is a pretty strong deterrent, but will make a point of adding my phone.

    Wow. Thank you for sharing this article. It's a rude awakening and a reminder to keep attentive and stay safe. Unfortunately this is something that we should keep in mind. I find it very powerful and important that she finished her run. What a strong human being:)

    Thank you for sharing, it is good to be reminded. I always run alone, and generally at the end of the day. I ALWAYS have my phone with me and try to stay aware of my surroundings but I am also hard of hearing and don't always hear someone coming up behind me. I echo what she says to do to prepare - take a self defense course. What she doesn't mention is to keep practicing the self-defense to keep it fresh in your mind and make it instinctive. Just taking the course won't help if you never practice what you learned...when you need it you won't remember.

Stay safe on your runs!
