Safety First

by - Friday, January 14, 2011

I had a nice post all planned out on runners as number crunchers, and the tools available for us to help track, record and monitor our training. But I'm bumping that post to next week and instead I'm offering a brief PSA.

A coworker of mine was mugged today getting off the Metro station and walking to work. Some creep grabbed her on the arm and tried to steal her purse. She punched him in the face and ran away.

Needless to say I'm a bit shaken.

So this is just a reminder to everyone, whether you're out running by yourself, walking to your car in a deserted parking lot, or getting off public transportation, please be careful. Be aware of your surroundings, have your cell phone/keys handy, be on alert.

Now that I'm working in a more shady part of town, I guess it's time I invest in some pepper spray.
