Run Alone

For many runners, preparing for a run involves going through a mental checklist before heading out: Proper shoes? Check. Headphones and smartwatch? Check. Running route planned? Check.
For women runners, however, a few additional questions may come to mind:
  • Does the route I’ve planned have other pedestrians around?
  • Will it be dark before I finish?
  • Will my running outfit (specifically made for running, mind you) attract unwanted attention?
  • Am I prepared if someone attacks me?
Safety, in a general sense, is a concern for every runner; wearing reflective clothing, choosing a familiar route and letting someone know where you’re going and when you expect to be back. However, for women, there is an increasing trepidation around safety from the dangers of being attacked on the run.

Is it Better to Run Alone or With Someone?

Versatility is another reason solo runners celebrate companion-free time on roads, streets, tracks and even when running races.
They’re not obligated to obey someone else’s time schedule, many discover that both their mind and body re-calibrate, and runners regularly tackle weighty issues and problems with new clarity borne of their time alone.
