You're enjoying a great run.
You're in "the zone."
You're lost in your own world.
You keep going, but then find yourself alone, becoming further away from anyone with each stride you take. What happens if someone confronts you? What if someone suddenly approaches? Would you be able to protect yourself? Are you prepared?
According to a survey conducted by Runner's World, 43% of women reported being harassed, 30% followed, 18% propositioned, and 3% reported being physically assaulted while running alone. Eye-opening numbers, and numbers you don't want to increase.
On the positive side, according to a study in the journal Cerebral Cortex, running produces feel-good endorphins in the areas of the brain associated with emotion. The study found the time and intensity of running required to achieve a "runner's high" differs from person to person, but researchers found most people to be happier and more relaxed during and after runs.
To stay safe during your run, it's a good idea to prepare yourself with safety devices for runners before you leave your house.
