Now that the days are warmer and longer, it's a great time to take your runs outdoors. Be sure to always keep your safety in mind when running this Spring, especially when you're running alongside vehicles. Check out a few tips for running on the street or sidewalk:
- Run with a buddy.
- If you'll be running alone, make sure someone else knows that you're running along with your route and estimated duration.
- If possible, try to run in familiar areas without a lot of vehicle traffic.
- Wear sunscreen.
- Before crossing streets in front of cars, make sure it's fully stopped and make eye contact with the driver to ensure they see you.
