Before you head out to the trails or local streets for your walk or run take a moment to consider the map and the following precautions-

- Jog with a partner but if you must jog alone, jog in a well lit area somewhat free of hiding areas and shadows where predators can lie-in-wait.

- Carry your cell phone and keep it turned on-authorities will triangulate your approximate location. Newer phones are GPS equipped-check service provider for details.

- If you can run without them DON'T wear headphones someone can sneak up on you. Keep your ears tuned and free of anything that will dull your hearing.

- Keep your eyes and head moving, look around constantly-see them before they see you. If you see someone coming you can prepare, surprise is the predator's plan.

- Let someone know where you are going.

- Stay current with local news reports because you will hear of attempted assaults or attacks in your area and you will be able to plan accordingly. Consult the map above to familiarize yourself with the area.

There are many other things you can do to Spring into action and be proactive in your own personal safety.
