10 Running Safety Tips from an Ex-Soldier

10-running-safety-tips-from-an-ex-soldier

by Danny Kaine, CEO of NOMAD SOS

Everyone assumes that all soldiers are runners. Not true. I’m an ex-soldier and since leaving the Army I have retained my fitness levels, but I have never been a runner. Put a pack on my back and I will hike up and down mountains until someone tells me to stop. When I do go for a run, I really have to work at it. I find myself listening to music, and thinking about literally anything other than the fact I am running.

November is National Running Safety Month and in my experience, a majority of accidents happen through a momentary lack of judgment, usually caused by being distracted, or fatigue, or a combination of both. I speak from experience, not only from close calls I have had while running, but also as the CEO of NOMAD SOS, an assistance company who has responded to several accidents and fatalities involving runners.

Take these precautions to protect yourself, no matter what activity you are doing outside, especially if you are walking, hiking, cycling or running alone.
