Jeff answers your questions How do I ensure personal safety?
Tell a family member or friend where you’re headed and when you’ll be back. If you run with headphones, keep the volume low and stay aware of your surroundings. Carry some identification with you, and perhaps your mobile phone, too.
What should morning runners know about evening runs?
You’ll be contending with more cars and people, so chart a route that’s safe and free of rush-hour congestion. It’ll probably be warmer and sunnier than it is in the mornings, so consider carrying water or increasing walk breaks.
