It doesn’t happen often, but moments when I feel unsafe are the absolute worst. When I feel like there is nothing I can do to protect myself, I feel helpless. I only feel that way when I’m unprepared. Every night I go for a stroll around my neighborhood. In no way do I think my neighborhood is unsafe, but crime doesn’t discriminate. I try my best to get my run in before it gets dark, but there are some nights that it just isn’t possible. My 15 lb miniature Schnauzer takes the run with me, but honestly if push comes to shove, I’m not too sure he could do much damage to an intruder.
I found a few products that I know would be great to purchase and have handy for not only my runs but every day so I thought I would share.
