It’s summer time!!! Which means more sun and more hours to go out and be active! Here are just a couple major important tips to run safely and with others this summer.
1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
I remember reading once that water is the Matrix for life, so don’t forget to drink water! If you can, drink at least 8 oz of water for every 30 minutes of running, and be sure to replenish completely when you are done with your run!
2. Wear some form of ID (Identification) and let others know how long you plan to be outside running
3. If you choose to run on the road, please run against traffic and keep eye contact with the drivers! This way you can approach each other rather than be continuously surprised by cars passing from behind you.
4. When you are going to pass other pedestrians, inform them you’ll be passing by them by saying in advance “Passing on your Left/Right!” This avoids them from becoming startled and lets them create room for you to pass!
