10 Ways You Can Stay Safe When Out On Morning Runs By Mile Posts Published Sep. 5, 2014 Updated Dec. 7, 2016 womensrunning.competitor.com
“..I personally have had run-ins with crazy people in cars. I’ve had people swerve towards me while I was pushing my kids in the running stroller, and sadly I saw a woman who died from being hit and dragged by a trash truck not 15 feet from the front door of my townhouse. These incidents have kept me on my toes while running, so to say. I know that keeping myself safe is my priority. I can’t rely on others to see me or for people to act in a manner that they should.
Here are some of my tips for staying safe on early morning runs—though many of these tips work for other times as well!…”

“..It’s summer. That means warmer weather, more daylight, people out and about enjoying the sunshine—it has to be safer to run outdoors, right? Wrong.
Generally speaking, yes, it is safer to run when it’s light out, as opposed to when it’s dark, but there’s something that happens to most of us during daylight—we feel invincible. And this is just as hazardous as running by ourselves at midnight on a poorly lit street…”

Video: A woman jogging in Bridgewater fought off a man attempting to assault and kidnap her By Dialynn Dwyer 9:05 AM .boston.com
A 57-year-old man is accused of sexually assaulting the woman as he tried to drag her to his car.
“..Bridgewater police said Gordon Lyons, 57, was arrested a short time after the alleged incident using a photo the victim took as he drove away to identify his car. He has been charged with kidnapping, indecent assault and battery on a person age 14 or older, and assault and battery. ..
The 37-year-old woman was jogging down the street when Lyons allegedly pulled his car over in front of her, got out of the car, and ran towards her, authorities said. He then grabbed both of her arms and sexually assaulted her as he tried to pull her towards his nearby car, according to police.
“The woman was able to scream and fight with Lyons, causing both of them to fall to the ground. Lyons then got up and ran back to his vehicle and fled the area,” police said in a statement…
The 37-year-old told The Brockton Enterprise she screamed and kicked at her attacker.
“I just knew that I needed to do whatever I needed to in order to be OK,” she told the newspaper. “I knew I needed to defend myself and be smart. I knew I needed to do something so this person wouldn’t just walk away.”..”

Top 10 Running Surfaces Marc Bloom
By Marc Bloom Posted on June 1, 2002 runnersworld.co.uk
Not all running surfaces are created equal – we’ve rated the top 10, from asphalt to woodland
“..“In the summer, when I run mainly on grass, my whole body seems to relax,” said two-time world indoor champion Marcus O’Sullivan after winning a mile race. Concrete, he noticed, sent shock waves through his body and was a surefire route to long-term damage. There was only one way to sum it up: “I’m convinced that if you run on softer surfaces, your career will last longer.” ..”
Don’t run on hard surfaces
Posted at: Aug 2, 2015, 12:52 AM; last updated: Jul 29, 2015, 7:45 PM (IST) tribuneindia.com
Jog in parks or on grass as running on solid surfaces like concrete or on roads can give you knee problems
“..Hard surface runs can lead to inflammation like Achilles tendonitis,( a condition where the tendon that connects the heel bone to lower leg becomes inflamed, causing heel pain), inflammation of the tendons and muscles in the front and outside of the leg, the knees cap and the lower leg bone, or tibia. Sometimes repetitive impact also can lead to stress fractures in the small bones of the foot or ankle, which can ultimately result in breakage. Changing your running surface, “is much like increasing your mileage, changing your shoes or some other aspect of your training program.” Abrupt changes can be risky so notice your problems first before going on any coclusion…”
5. Synthetic Track
Nowadays, almost all British tracks are made of modern synthetic materials. While most people think of them purely as fast surfaces for fast runners, they’re more versatile than that.
Pros: Synthetic tracks provide a reasonably forgiving surface and, being exactly 400 metres around, make measuring distances and timing sessions easy.
Cons: With two long curves on every lap, ankles, knees and hips are put under more stress than usual. Longer runs also become very tedious.
Conclusion: Tracks are ideal for speedwork, but you have to be dedicated to use them for anything else.
Sal: I personally prefer running on a “rubber” outdoor track…
…it’s easier on my knees and I don’t have to worry about the other “outdoor elements” (e.g. unexpected uneven surfaces, traffic, etc..)

Is running on concrete bad for your knees?
s Running on Pavement Risky? updated Jul 29, 2017
by Paul Ingraham, Vancouver, Canada bio painscience.com
Hard-surface running may be risk factor for running injuries like patellofemoral pain, IT band syndrome, shin splints, and plantar fasciitis
“…there’s a lot of research about impact, some of it concerning different surfaces, just a few of those specifically about the relationship between impact and injury. As of the end of 2016, there were only about 18 decent experiments, with too many differences between them to clearly interpret. A review of these by van der Worp et al concluded just a single thing with confidence: a history of stress fractures is associated with a higher impact forces in running gait.13..”
The Best Running Surface for Your Knees outsideonline.com
Is running on hard surfaces really bad for your knees?
“…The bottom line: When it comes to injury, researchers currently believe no single surface is better than another. Concrete, for instance, is hard, but it’s typically consistent. Asphalt roads often are cambered for drainage, while the unpredictability of many grass and dirt surfaces can cause instant injuries. (Mickey Mantle famously injured his right knee during the 1951 World Series when he sprinted across a baseball field and caught his shoe on a sprinkler.) Your best bet for avoiding injuries, experts say: mix it up. Incorporate a variety of surfaces into your training, including grass, dirt, asphalt, concrete, and tracks…”
