  1. Don’t run with head phones in
    Let someone know where you are going and when you will be back
    Keep your self out of the zone and in reality by looking around
    Try to stay away from secluded areas
    Take corners wide to make sure you can’t be grabbed by someone
    Keep a personal space cushion big enough so someone can’t touch you

  2. Don’t run on a trail where you have no escape routes and can be blocked in. Listen to your gut, don’t let pride make you afraid to turn around or change course if you feel uneasy.

    If on a college campus, carry syrup of ipecac, goes without saying.

  3. I may or may not be found carrying a NAA mini on one of my camelback straps when I’m running trails. Or suburban streets.
