Running Safely

 We have all seen runners dart in and out of traffic.Running can be done safely if planned correctly. In heavy traffic areas, run on sidewalks. If there aren't any, always run facing traffic.Use good judgement. Some areas are just plain dangerous to run in. Never run alone at night. Always be aware of your surroundings. It's alright to run in the nearest sub-division or use the high school track. Always wear light reflective clothing after sunset.Clip on lights can be purchased at running shops. Some of my early morning runs are in a Publix store parking lot.The lights are on and their employees are there early. Stay safe!
