Be Safe
November is National Running Safety Month. 
How can you stay safe while on a run?

  • Let someone know where you’re going before you take off.
  • Carry identification.
  • Bring a running buddy.
  • Light up your running outfit.
  • Run against traffic, look both ways before crossing a street, and stay on the sidewalk whenever possible.
  • If you listen to music while you run, keep the volume at a level where you're still alert of your surroundings
