How to Run Safely Outside
  • Do a proper warm up and cool down.
  •  Wear brightly colored running clothes and reflective gear.
  • Select the right shoes. A proper fit means that your heel should be snug and not excessively slide up and down. Additionally, there should be about ½ inch between the end of your longest toe and the end of the toe box. Periodically, check the soles of your shoes for signs of wear.
  • Carry some form of identification with you.
  • Watch for cyclists and other runners.
  • Don’t make assumptions about drivers. Be sure to make eye contact with drivers at street crossing before you cross.
  • Pay attention to your surroundings. Do not use personal stereo headsets for your outdoor runs.
  • Don’t run alone at night.
  • Pace yourself. Start jogging at a slower pace for the first few minutes or start your jog with a brisk walk. If you want to run faster or longer, limit increases to no more than 10 percent a week.
