For those of you who don’t know me … I’m a very trusting person. To the point where I’m often lectured by friends and family for being too risky, especially when it comes to running alone.
If you’ve listened to our podcast on running safety, I told a story about how I saw this man in the neighborhood decorating his camper in Buffalo Bills decor and when he offered to show me the inside … I said yes and went in to check it out. He’s a Bills fan, so he has to be a cool guy, right?
Okay, you can stop shaking your head now. I have tried to make smarter choices since then, I swear!
But now as I’m about to embark on following my first marathon training plan, I have received several items from Sabre Safety to test out. Immediately my husband was like … wow these are great, why don’t you have this stuff already?
First item was a personal alarm which you wear on your wrist and it has a silver ring you pull which makes a loud sound that can be heard up to 1000 feet. It’s very very loud. You should’ve seen us scrambling to shut off when we tested it!
Second was a personal pepper spray. No, I haven’t tested this one out but it comes with a wrist strap to make carrying easy.
And third is an LED Light which will be helpful for those dark runs. I could’ve used last summer when I tripped in the dark on sidewalk and ended up with a black eye.
I am feeling a little bit of relief having these items. I tend to run solo and will be doing so in early mornings all summer, it’ll probably still be dark when I start and knowing I have these items takes away a little bit of anxiety I feel, especially in quieter areas.
