Safety tips

I never used to be concerned with running safety until a few years back when I moved. I was suddenly in an unfamiliar neighborhood, with unfamiliar streets and unfamiliar people on those streets. I had never experienced the slightest hesitation going for a run in the dark in my old neighborhood, but suddenly I wasn’t so sure.

That’s why I’m offering the following running safety running tips. These should be considered by anyone running alone – women or men! We all know how great it is to get outdoors for a jog, but keep your safety in mind first and foremost.

  • Try to solicit a running partner – especially if you like to run in the dark, at dusk or at twilight.
  • Always tell someone at home where you’re running and when you’ll be back.
  • Carry your I.D. and some change for an emergency phone call.
  • Carry a noisemaker with you, such as a whistle, a personal security alarm, etc.
  • When running alone, refrain from wearing earphones.
  • Avoid lonely trails and unlit areas at night and twilight / dusk.
  • Never run the same route.
  • Always stay alert in your environment – which means don’t wear your iPod! Note who is around you, and stare people in the face as they come towards you.
  • Run near public sites that are bustling with some type of activity. Stay away from parked cars, bushes and dark alleys – remember there is safety in numbers.

Extraterrestrial Full Moon Midnight Marathon

Calico Racing was born on a 15 mile run at Red Rock Canyon, just outside of Las Vegas. Recently back from a fantastic ultramarathon and vacation up in Moab I felt completely at peace surrounded by the serenity of the canyons. Though thoughts of putting on races in Las Vegas' beautiful places had crossed my mind for years, this would be the day I put that dream into motion. Since I started racing in 2002 I always found myself attracted to doing new events each year- it's the wanderlust Sagittarian in me. To date, there are only 2 events that I have done more than once, and that was more of a logistical choice. Now, with 54 marathons in 27 states, 8 Ironman triathlons, 10 ultramarathons (including Comrades and 1 x 100 miler), and crew/ pacing for Badwater four times, as well as racing and volunteering numerous short course events all on different courses, I have come to consider myself a bit of a connoisseur of running and triathlon events. (I realize to many of you ultrarunners out there reading this, that may seem like a year's worth of racing!)
