Health Tip: Run Smart, Run Safe
Don't use headphones

(HealthDay News) -- The next time you go for a run or jog, staying safe should be your first concern.

The Road Runners Club of America offers these safety tips:

  • Don't wear headphones, which can reduce awareness of your surroundings.
  • Always run against traffic.
  • Follow all traffic signals and rules. Look both ways before crossing, making sure drivers acknowledge you.
  • Carry ID with you, or label the inside of your running shoes with your ID and medical information, including blood type.
  • Wear reflective gear when running at dusk, dawn or night.
  • Carry a phone and a noisemaker.
  • Run with a buddy, and vary your usual route in familiar areas.
  • Tell loved ones where you will be running. Avoid isolated or overgrown areas.
