A runner can be very limited as to what they can do when they leave their home but the what they can be is try and be prepared.
Here are some pointers from Dora of Goddess Armor Protection
The ultimate message is to always be safe
A RUNNER’S NIGHTMARE, Dora- Goddess Armor Protection, 2015
Can you defend yourself when you go running? Most women on average would say I don’t know, I’ve never thought of it. Those two sentences alone should be shocking enough for any women or girl to take a stand for her own safety. What does that mean? That means staying alert and being prepared, and not running or walking with both ear buds in, or continually talking on the phone.
Before the Run
Always try to plan the route, especially if you are running a new route
Let someone know where you going. If you live alone, you might want to post it your fridge
Do not run or walk with both ear buds in ears
Vary your pattern (go in directions on different days)
Don’t go alone especially as it’s getting darker
Stray away from bushy areas, parking lots
Take notice of your surroundings; people following you, cars around you, activities occurring
What Happens if I’m Approached
Yell, anything, even if the attacker tells you to shut up
Put your hands in the air and YELL BACK OFF, WHAT DO YOUWANT, LEAVE ME ALONE
Never ever run further into the woods or away from a group of people
Remain calm. Don’t over exhaust yourself with a fight. Gain inner strength then let loose
Never leave point A…….!!!!!
Again, don’t overly exhaust yourself with struggling. Gain your inner strength then let loose
Calm the attacker, if possible
Take mentally notes ; place, smells, people, cars, clothes, their genital area… EVERYTHING
Don’t beg and plead, again try and remain calm
