#FreshSalt: Readers Roundtable: What Do You Take with You on the Run?: Sometimes I am amazed when I p... #running

When I’m running I don’t want to care about all that other stuff; I want to just be. I don’t like to listen to podcasts or music outside. I can read and listen to messages when I get back. If I think I’ll get thirsty I run at the park where there are water fountains, but I don’t always run with nothing. If I’m marathon training or worried about bonking I might shove a gel in my bra on a long run. If my stomach is iffy, I’ll stash some tp somewhere just in case. I care about personal safety, but I’m not afraid. I bring my phone sometimes, like if I’m running on dark roads alone or if someone other than my husband is watching the kids. I do tell my husband where I’ll be. I’d never dream of running with pepper spray or any kind of weapon; kinda defeats the purpose if I’m running in that much fear that I need that stuff.
