Not everyone has the time to go to the gym, to keep in shape. Due to non-flexible working hours you might have to settle with running to stay fit. But what most people do not even think about is their safety while going for a run. Most of them would just think that they are safe just because they are going running in a park, and there are other people around. So no one would try to assault or mug you.
In a recent study, it was shown that one in three women are assaulted during jogging, and that their attackers stalk them for about a week before actually attacking them. The attackers even know where their victims stay, where they go to work, and when they get off from work. However, when you are going for a run, you would not have space to carry a bulky self-defense weapon. The best choice for these kind of situations is the pepper spray. They have a range of 6 to 8 feet, which means you won’t have to be too close to your attacker. The pepper spray is also quite handy against a group of attackers, and it does not take any training to use.
You can also opt for a stun gun. They do not have the range of the pepper sprays, but are quite potent. Personal alarms also do a good job at letting other people know about your dilemma.
