TRACK YOUR­SELF

Runner's World (UK) - - Harassment -

While there’s not much you can do about cross­ing the path of some­one who might ha­rass you, you can take steps to help re­as­sure you in case some­thing should hap­pen. Run­ning app Strava in­tro­duced the fea­ture Bea­con for pre­mium mem­bers last year. When it’s ac­ti­vated, you can send a se­cure URL to a part­ner, friend or fam­ily mem­ber that lets them see where you are on an on­line map. So, should it hap­pen that you stray from your reg­u­lar route or aren’t home when you planned to be, some­one close to you will be able to check in and en­sure ev­ery­thing’s as it should be. Chances are, you’ve sim­ply mixed up your course or popped to the shops for a postrun snack, but in the un­likely case that things have taken a turn for the sin­is­ter, some­body will know.
