For many runners
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?
