So many of us are saddened to hear of the missing Montana teacher Sherry Arnold who is now presumed dead. Such a tragedy! Those of us who are solo morning runners are no doubt freaked out.
When I was in my early twenties, I used to run alone outside in the mornings, and I never thought about safety even a little bit. Course that running stint didn't last long so it wasn't a big deal. As I'm older now and have a child to think about, I admit to being a little bit more cautious when it comes to running alone in the mornings. I usually always run in the neighborhood so that even if I'm alone, I'm not out in a completely uninhabited area. But I admit that I can probably exercise more safety precautions. (Lately I've been really safe in the mornings...all snug and warm in my bed!!)
This tragedy is a reminder for all of us. Running alone in the morning or late at night is not the safest thing in the world so please be careful.
PS. I need a running partner!!
