A RUNNER’S NIGHTMARE, Goddess Armor Protection, 2016
Are you defenseless when you go running, can you defend yourself when you’ve reached panic mode? Most women and some men on average would say; sure I can, I don’t know, I’ve never thought of it. It’s a scary thought to process to think of but a reality for many people that routinely go running without giving it a second thought.
So we go running. We got our bright colored sneakers, our shirt and bottoms and don’t forget the trusty cell phone so you can answer your phone and listen to our favorite playlist that we compiled for running. and let’s not forget our ear buds.
Now I ask you what item should be removed or altered for use when going running?
There’s nothing wrong with running, there’s nothing wrong with living your life the way you deem necessary. What is important is that you are vigilant, and hypersensitive of your surroundings; no walking with both ear buds in, and stop talking on the phone.In order to be safe you have to practice safety, here are a few safety precautions to follow from Goddess Armor Protection
Before the Run
Always try to plan the route, especially if you are running a new route
Make sure your cell phone is fully charged.
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 inserted
Vary your pattern (go in directions on different days)
Don’t go alone id possible, especially as it’s getting darker
Stray away from bushy areas, dimly lit areas.
Take notice of your surroundings; people following you, cars around you, or other activities occurring.
What Happens if I’m Approached and Attacked
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, regardless of what the attacker is screaming at you to do.!!!!!
Calm the attacker, if possible
Take mentally notes of; place, smells, people, cars, clothes, their genital area… EVERYTHING
Don’t beg and plead, again try and remain calm
