Running Safely: What Every New Runner Needs to Know
Fall is one the best time of the year for running – the weather is just right, the environment is more colorful, and there are fewer people on the streets because many prefer to stay home or go to the gym when the temperature drops. Fewer crowds, however, don’t make your run safer. Neither does daylight. Just because you can see far ahead of you doesn’t make you invincible. Wearing headphones, taking unfamiliar routes, or never changing them can be as dangerous as running in the dark with no reflective gear.
