Running Safety

I'm sure by now everybody has heard about the tragedy of the Montana Mother/Teacher Runner. I did not know her personally, but she was a sister runner and I think of us all as family. You should be able to go for a Saturday morning run in your home town. Something she did every morning, but doing that every day was maybe too predictable. I'm sure she didn't think anything about it, I know I didn't, but people watch and they know your patterns. Just like if someone wanted to rob your house, they watch your patterns, when your home, when you leave, when your home alone. Please change your running route often, I know we are all creatures of habit but for safety sake change the route and watch your surroundings. I love to run with my music, but maybe from now on I will run with just one earphone so I can hear with the other. This is a needless tragedy, and I am keeping her family, friends and students in my prayers. Be safe out there
