Spring Running Tip: Pepper Spray

Woman have to be careful when running alone outside. It's an unfortunate fact of life. Now that the weather is beginning to warm up, you might have that motivating itch to run outside.

Of course running with a friend is always a safer choice than running by yourself, but if you're like me, you can't always coordinate with your friend. Exercising is also a time for me to be alone with my thoughts, so running with someone would defeat the whole purpose.

Some women feel safer running with some protection. Check out this pepper spray for active women. It has a velcro strap so you can attach it to your clothes. Or, you can even wrap it around your palm in case you need to make a quick response.

Pepper spray is non-toxic, so it won't cause any permanent damage, but it is hot. It's made from cayenne peppers and contains 15% of capsaicin, the heat creating substance found in the peppers. It can fire up to a distance of 18 feet, and the effects can last up to an hour. Each holder can spray about 20-25 1-second bursts.

Fit's Tips: You can order one for $10.50 or 3 for $29.25. It's a small price to pay for your peace of mind.
