What type of coverage do you need?

Running may be one of the easiest forms of exercise around: You don’t need an expensive health club membership or a lot of elaborate equipment, just a good pair of shoes and plenty of room to run. But wherever you’re heading, stay safe. Follow these precautions:

  • Leave your iPod at home. Earphones that block out street noises can increase your risk of a mishap.
  • Run facing traffic. If you must run in the street, head against the traffic so cars are easier to see and avoid.
  • Plan your route. Avoid areas you’re not familiar with.
  • Run with a buddy. If possible, enlist a friend to join you for moral support and extra safety.
  • Carry ID. If you’re injured and unable to communicate, your name and phone number will enable paramedics and good Samaritans to notify your family. (A cell phone is handy, too.)
  • Bring a little money. A few dollars for cab fare or something to eat or drink in a hurry can be very useful in a pinch.
  • Yield to cars. Don’t assume drivers can see you, or that they’ll be able to stop if you trip and fall. Let cars go first through intersections, and watch for vehicles turning unexpectedly.
  • Defend yourself. A whistle or some other kind of noisemaker, or some pepper spray, can keep attackers away.
  • Don’t just disappear. Tell someone where you’re going, or leave a note behind.
  • Wear sunscreen. In the summer, protecting your skin from sunburn is essential.
