Tuvizo Draws Attention To Running Safety With 20 Critical Tips For Runners
Running is an excellent form of exercise as well as an effective stress-reliever. Tuvizo, the reflective gear company, shares its own list of 20 safety tips to help runners stay safe on the road and gain maximum benefits from every single run.
The Tuvizo Reflective Running Vest provides high visibility in the day and excellent reflective qualities at night for running, cycling, walking, and other outdoor pursuits.
"For many, running is an escape time where we get to empty our head and have some quiet time. If this is you, don't forget that you still have to be aware of safety," says Tuvizo's Marketing and PR spokesperson Jo Parkes.
When it comes to running, there is safety in numbers, according to the article. If at all possible, runners should go with at least one running buddy to help deter aggressive action by criminally-minded elements. Putting on a reflective running vest or a reflective running gear, such as a belt, was also mentioned as essentials to road safety.
Using earphones and listening to music during a run may look glamorous in some Hollywood movies but in real life, this is not at all advisable, according to the article. The runner needs to always stay alert on the road and the use of earphones would greatly diminish hearing ability. Another drawback to carrying a music player (such as a cell phone or an iPod) is that these items are highly attractive to criminals and could potentially turn the runner into a target.
The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) also suggests that runners carry some kind of identification during the run, in case anything untoward happens. If it's not convenient to carry a wallet or an ID card, essential information such as name, phone number, and blood type can be written on the inside sole of a running shoe, according to the RRCA.
Another safety tip suggested is that runners should vary their routes as often as necessary not just to overcome boredom but also to avoid becoming too predictable to stalkers. Noisemakers can likewise be helpful to attract attention and seek assistance in case of emergency, according to the Tuvizo article.
"Are you out running regularly? Are you thinking about your safety? These 20 Safety Tips For Runners will help you keep safe when you are racking up the miles," concludes Ms. Parkes.
