Are you a female runner or jogger? If so, do you carry a self defense weapon with you on jogging trails? If your answer is no, why not? It only makes good sense. We have always been told not to jog at night and never jog alone. But what if you work odd hours and don’t have a jogging partner? Or maybe your work situation doesn’t make it possible to job in the daylight hours.
You are at risk when you run alone in dark or poor lighted areas. A female jogger is seen as a prime target for someone who is looking for someone to assault or rape. A runner may be tired or winded and as such may be seen as an easy victim.
