I believe physical fitness is important, so I applaud women that are disciplined and dedicated to hit the pavement at 5:00 am for their daily walk or run. However, there are a few simple safety tips that will help safeguard you from being attacked and abducted by a sexual predator.
My work day usually begins at 6:00 am so I leave my home at 5:00 am to be on time. I’ve observed the same female every morning at a particular intersection while driving to work daily. As an experiment, I tried to guess the time that she would appear at this intersection. During this five day experiment I was correct 4 out of 5 times.
So, what’s my point? You don’t know who may be watching you or stalking you in order to launch a surprise attack. If you must exercise in public and especially in the dark, find a partner to exercise with and vary your routine so your route is not easily predictable. Also, run or walk facing oncoming traffic and while wearing earplugs keep the volume low enough that you can hear “pop” when snapping your own fingers to music. By doing this you will minimize the chances of being victimized by a sexual predator.
These are dangerous times, so I recommend that all women carry Wildfire Pepper Spray as self defense against an attacker. It’s very fast reacting and will save your life if attacked and abducted by a creep.
