Runner’s SAFETY with SABRE. It is a big deal.

I have an awesome giveaway for you today from SABRE and you do not want to miss out on this…  It is for something that EVERY outdoor runner needs!!!

————————————

Let’s talk about the reason I actually started running in the first place.  Rewind to many many years ago (going on 18 years now!!) and my sister would go running by herself at night.  She has always been into fitness and working out (I got that love for running from her, that is for sure) and running at night was her favorite way to relieve stress.  We lived in the same house at this time, (the one my parents live in now) which is in a very safe neighborhood so running at night really didn’t seem like a big deal to her as a teenager.  We also live in Utah which also seems to be a pretty safe area in general BUT when my sister started running alone by herself at night my mom decided to go the police station to get the police statistics for attacks/rapes in the county.  She showed them to my sister and it was an eyeopener FOR SURE and from then on my sister ran during the daylight hours and brought me along most of the time with her.  That is why I started running in the very beginning, running in pairs is always safer so my running began.  Running with my sister (and the amazing memories I have over the years of us running together are my absolute favorite).

Just a month ago I was reminded all over again that yes, it seems like we live in a very safe area but things still happen and I need to do everything I can to protect myself while running outside.  I was running on the Provo River Trail at about 9 in the morning when a biker stopped me.  The biker told me to turn around right that second because just around the next turn (not that many strides up ahead) was a man doing some pretty crazy stuff (I won’t go into details because I don’t want to type those words).  He told me that he had just called the cops but he was now warning anyone near the area.  I think I ran a 5 minute mile in the other direction.  It scared the living daylights out of me and I am so beyond grateful for the biker that came to warn me.  I don’t want this to be a downer post, I just want it to be a huge reminder that WE NEED TO BE SMART out on the roads and trails each day as we are logging in the miles.

I think something we can all do today is come up with a plan for maximizing our safety while out on a run.

Some things that I do:

*I always have my phone with me while I run.

*I try to always stick to running on busier roads and running/bike trails that have people all along the way.

*I do not run when it is dark by myself.  If I need to run when it is dark I have three options:  bring a friend with me, run on the treadmill or have my dad follow me in the car until it is light outside. Below picture that my dad took from his car during a 20 mile run we started at 4 AM together.

But after that scare last month I added a very important thing to my plan for safety!

SABRE.

SABRE is the #1 pepper spray brand trusted by police and consumers worldwide—> they are for sure leading the pepper spray industry.  They are a family owned and operated business (over FORTY years of experience).

Let’s talk about the Runner Pepper Gel (what I take whenever I am running by myself now)—>  I love the little strap that fits comfortably around your hand.  I forget that I am even holding it after a mile or so.  With the pepper gel there is a NO wind blow-back like traditional sprays!  It is also amazing protection against multiple threats at a safe distance.  The pepper gel reaches 12 ft.  It comes in a variety of sizes that are perfect for all sorts of different activities like cycling, running and home defense in general.  I am beyond thrilled that I will get to live with Andrew soon because I am not going to lie, I was afraid often living on my own for so many years.  And for this last little bit before I move in with him, I have been loving having this by my bed to help me feel that much more secure.

IMG 7264

SABRE also offers a brand new product—>   a Runner Personal Alarm that is also perfect for runners because it just wraps around your wrist really nicely!  Your garmin on one arm and this on the other, right!?  This personal alarm really helps to attract attention and make witnesses out of the people around you.  If there are witnesses and people paying attention to you then a criminal is much more likely to run the other way.

IMG 7271

I love how simple it is to just strap on the pepper gel and go.  (PS Andrew is my favorite photographer;)

IMG 7293

SABRE offers all sorts of different products too like senior citizen/college/tactical/on-the-go/home defense pepper sprays and gels, dog sprays, bear sprays and home alarms!!  I love that they have products just for runners because there is a huge community of people that NEED these products to help them to be safe (and FEEL safer) while out on the run.

What a great give away! My husband bought me a handheld pepper spray about 4 years ago because I used to always run in the hills above our house. I love the trails, but running alone up there freaked my husband out, not me so much. But about 1-1/2 years ago my friend was up there and there was a naked man jogging. Since then I’ve been very reluctant to run up there, and I don’t feel quite as safe. I’ve had it so long I’m not sure it even is still effective. I would probably like the gel, though the alarm is way cool too. So when you pull the ring and the alarm goes off, can you use it again? It’s not a one time use thing is it? I’ve grown pretty lax in the safety area living in sleepy Centerville, but I need to be more aware and safe. Thanks for the reminder!

Reply

I would love to try the personal alarm with the adjustable wrist strap. What a wonderful invention for running solo. Safety for runners is so important. Also, teaching kids/youth that you need to take extra measures to protect yourself.:)

Reply

I would love the pepper gel in the pink (not so much because I like pink but because I could find it easily as I head out to run)! It has been on my list to get some pepper spray — thanks for the reminder!

Reply

I think I want the Runner’s Pepper Gel and the alarm. I was attacked by a dog recently and the alarm would have come in very handy. I am going to order the alarm for myself for sure.

Reply

Thank you for this post! I can use the arm alarm! I was actually grabbed during a run in daylight not far from where I live and I always look over my shoulder now and only wear one ear bud in and always carry pepperspray. The one time I forgot it I was really nervous and kind of paranoid but I feel at ease when I carry it. It was a terrifying experience and having to explain to my children why the police came home with me (to get details on the perpetrator) after my run to say “Mommy got grabbed by a stranger” was the worst feeling. I never ever thought that would happen to me. You’re mom is amazing educating your sis that way. Awareness is so important. Please ladies carry some spray at the very least!!

Reply

I love the runner pepper gel with the handstrap!! What a great idea. The personal alarm is also a good move even if you run during the day (but alone). Can never be too careful, right?

Reply

That alarm is such a great idea! I just had a scary incident happen to me on my long run the other week in a very public area that I run around all the time feel very safe in…you just never know. I hate carrying things with me so having an alarm right on my wrist for the times I’m running solo could literally be a lifesaver!

Reply

Such a great giveaway! This MA girl would love to win the alarm!

Reply

I would love the alarm and the gel spray. I moved recently and do all my workouts alone:(
I sure miss my running buddies!

I like the sabre pepper gel with adjustable hand strap, I run alone early mornings so this will definitely come in handy. I will also be purchasing some for my 2 daughters in college. Thank you for the reviewing this.

Reply

The alarm would be great! And the pepper spray in pink!

Reply

This is such an important subject. During the winter, I run solo a lot outside. Whether it’s light or dark, I carry the Sabre pepper spray. But since I live in a windy city, I should probably upgrade to the pepper gel! That personal alarm looks pretty awesome too.

Reply

I would love the pepper gel spray and the alarm!! I run by myself most of the time just because my running friends don’t work outside of the home and like to sleep in during the summer, the lucky ladies:0)

Reply

Runners Pepper Gel! This is perfect, my husband already bought me a spray but i don’t take it with me on my early morning runs cause it’s so bulky. This product is perfect!!

Reply

I usually run in the early hours before work. I take my dog, but the handheld w/ adjustable strap pepper spray would make me feel more safe!

Pepper Spray gel or the alarm for my teenager daughter who often runs around our neighborhood alone training for field hockey and track. We live in a newer development and always a lot of construction and traffic in neighborhood.

Reply

Runners pepper gel! For security and hoping I never have to use it!

Reply

Such an important post, Janae!

Some other safety tips:
UNLOCK or UNDO THE PASSWORD on your phone!
Always let someone know where you will be running and about how long you expect to be out.
Don’t run the same exact route and the same exact time every day.
If you listen to music…make sure it is at a reasonable volume and you can still be aware of your surroundings.

Reply

I’d love the one you tried out – athletic w/the hand strap. I recently tried out this claw-type thing for our running store, and I didn’t like it because it seemed like it would take a lot of energy when you’re already tired when you’re running. I had considered pepper spray, but didn’t want to risk spraying myself if I’m running. The gel sounds good! I live in a not-so-nice town, and my husband gets worried about me. :(

Reply

I usually run with my friends so I’m more afraid of dogs than I am of attackers. I would love the arm band of pepper spray so I could get the dogs that scare us half to death in the early morning hours that we run. I don’t like anything in my hand – that is why I like the arm band so much. This is a great give-away. I hope I win!!

Id like the Runner Pepper Gel with adjustable Hand Strap!

So many good choices! I would LOVE to win the 3 in 1 pepper spray or the runner pepper gel in black as well as the alarm.

The runner pepper gel and the alarm sound like great products to me :)

Reply

The alarm would be awesome!

Reply

I would love to win the pepper spray or gel and the alarm. I often run by myself in the mornings out of necessity and I am always on hyper alert. I really have no idea what I would do if someone attacked me. That is so awesome of your Dad to follow you in the car when it is dark out!

I would love to win the pepper gel in the pink!

The pepper gel! That incident you had last month is freaking me out.

The runner pepper gel, for sure!

The alarm would be great! And the pepper spray in pink! : )

There are definitely some weirdos out there! I would love to have one of the Sabre stun guns… But not sure that would be comfortable toting along on runs so I think I’ll go for the runner friendly handheld pepper gel! ?

Reply

I would love to have the PepperGel with adjustable hand strap!

I’ve had some pretty interesting things happen on the trails where I live, so I do run with spray and my phone now. I hate carrying things in my hands, so the arm band pepper gel looks awesome!

I’d like the runners pepper gel!

The runner pepper gel in pink! My dad always tells me I should run with some when I’m alone!

Reply

I’d love the Runner Pepper Gel with the pink hand strap! The SABRE Personal Safety Academy is such a great idea too. I’ve always wanted to take a self-defense class, so I may check out a class near me. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

Reply

I would love to win the Runner’s Spray with the hand strap. Even when I run in the daytime with my dog, I sometimes run into weird or suspicious people, so it would be a great accessory to have!

Reply

I’d love the pepper spray. Now that I’m starting marathon training I need to run at least 1 morning before work- at 4:30 am. It’s dark out, but it’s getting too hot to run in the evening- plus I’m tired when I get home from 12 hour shifts.

Reply

I could definitely use the runner pepper gel in black! I like to get my run in after work, during the summer months it is light outside but once winter begins it gets dark here at 4pm (long before I get off work). So this pepper gel would be so helpful for me!

Reply

I have been telling myself I would get some of this for a while now, the homeless population in the trails I run has grown significantly and I just think as a young woman I need to have something to protect myself! I would love the pepper gel with adjustable hand strap, seems like it’d be easy to pack along and would make me feel a lot safer out on my trail runs!

Reply

Definitely the runner pepper gel! And in pink, of course! :)

Reply

I am definitely loving the runner alarm. Going to look more into that.

Reply

Pepper gel in black is my pick! Thank you for bringing awareness to safety!

Reply

running pepper gel with hand strap. such an awesome reminder. something we get a little too comfortable.

Reply

The runner pepper gel is perfect! I dont know why I haven’t thought of getting something like this before now.

Reply

Though I love that they have options for the bike I think the handheld runner gel option would fit me best. I carry mace with me already, but this would be much more convenient! It can definitely be scary running alone!

Reply

Runner Pepper Jelly with adjustable hand strap, in pink of course! Thanks for the safety reminder! It is so easy to “zone” out during runs, but it is important to pay attention to your surroundings so nothing bad happens.

Reply

Thank goodness I haven’t had anything scary happen to me on runs but I do run at night in an area lacking street lights do I’m always on guard.

Reply

This is such a good idea!! I would love to have the runner pepper spray in pink…I run by myself most of the time and I’m not usually afraid, as I live where a lot of runners are. Awesome giveaway!!

Reply

Initially I thought the gel, but the more I read about the alarm the more drawn to that I was. It could be used for so many other things besides running! Maybe I just need both. Lol!

Reply

LOVE this! I live in a big city (philly) and being out alone wether running or w the kiddos, I do get frightened at times. But I am also frightened by the typical pepper spray so the gel spray wrist band looks amazing and perfect!

Reply

I’d love to try the personal alarm with the adjustable strap. This is a good reminder to keep safe! Thank you!

Reply

I would love to win the runner pepper gel! I didn’t know products like this existed but what a great idea!

Reply

You bring up such an important topic… this is exactly the reason why I mostly run at the local park (laps basically), because that is the safest place to run around here. We have beautiful bike trails along the river, but I am afraid to run there by myself…. so pepper spray would come in really handy!! And I love the alarm (that will definitely deter predators).

I’d love to win the pepper spray gel wrist band in black.

Reply

Runner pepper gel with the pink strap please! I run alone about 95% of the time and I always think about if something were to happen while I was out running. This would definetly make me feel more secure!

Reply

Peppergel in pink!

Reply

Janae – I would love the hand strap pepper gel in black. Had a scary incident a couple months ago when I was running with my 10 month old in the stroller, wish I would have had it then! We are both ok, nothing happened, but still! Thanks for this wonderful post!

Reply

I would love to try the gel spray with hand strap!! I run alone every single day, so having something to make me feel safe would be awesome!!

Reply

I would pick the handheld Pepper Gel. I currently carry pepper spray on early morning long runs along the country roads behind my house. Not only for safety from other people, but also from animals! I LOVE that there’s no concern about wind blow-back.

Reply

The alarm for sure

Reply

I’d like the personal alarm! :)

I’d love the pepper gel with hand strap.

I would love to own the personal alarm. I try to avoid running alone whenever possible, but in reality sometimes you have to go solo.
Great post, great giveaway!!

Reply

I’d love the pink strap pepperspray! I run with a tiny thing of it but it’s usually attached to my keys in my spi-belt. i also think the alarm would be handing!

Reply

Defense spray and the Runner Alarm seem great.

Reply

I need to get some of the runner pepper gel! You can never be too careful!

Reply

The pepper gel with the adjustable hand strap looks so convenient!! I know I should think about safety more when I am running, because I do 95% of my running alone. I do bring my dog on the shorter runs, but he can’t always take the heat in the Midwest, even though he thinks he can.

Reply

I like the pepper spray with the adjustable strap.

Reply

Such a great idea! I really like the idea of the pepper gel because I am always afraid the spray would blow back. Also, since I am in Wyoming, the bear spray could be a great security feature too!

Reply

My life and schedule require that I run alone and in the dark about 80% of the year, since I have to run at 5am and none of my running friends want to get up that early (I don’t blame them). The other 20% is spent at an indoor track when it is too cold or snowy to run outside.
Because of this I have done pretty much everything in my power to make sure I am safe and still able to run outside. Luckily, I live in an extremely safe area, BUT I still remind myself that it is only safe until it isn’t, and it only takes one sicko to ruin that. So that said, I ALWAYS run with my phone – unlocked, I only wear one headphone so I can hear what is going on around me, said headphones have either bluetooth or a remote on them that allow me to make a call without touching my phone, I carry pepper spray, and I vary my route from run to run and last but not least, I trust my gut – if something or someone seems out of place I will cross the road, turn around or run up to someones porch.

I would pick the handheld pepper spray, mostly for the no blowback feature, although I really like the wrist alarm.

Reply

Great post! I would also add the importance of having some type of ID and/or contact information on you in case something happens. My favorite is RoadID (www.roadid.com) because they have so many versatile options but there are probably other companies out there, too.

Reply

I live in the middle of no where and worry more about wild animals. ( I have been chased by a bear) SO I would Love the personal alarm as I think it would help scare an animal away!

Reply

the 3 in 1 pepper spray is my favorite! would love to win this :)

Reply

I already own some of their pepper spray and take it with me on any dark solo run. I took a great self defense course several years ago that made me so much more aware, confident, and anxious all at the same time.

I’d love to get the personal alarm. It would draw a lot of attention on the neighborhood trails I run if I ever needed to.

Reply

I would love the gel or the alarm. I not only run on a trail (where shady things have happened), I also ride public transit to work, and the crime rats on my city’s system have been increasing as of late. Having these SABRE items would make me feel a little better!

Black Spray!! :)

Reply

I’d love the pepper gel in pink!!

That is soo scary! I had the spray with the adjustable hand strap and lost it when traveling a few yrs ago. I’d love to win one as I never did replace it (sad but true)! Great reminder as I frequently run alone in the dark WI mornings.
Thank you and congrats on the engagement!!

Reply

I am always very aware and try to be extra safe probably a little too extreme! I would love the hand strap to make carrying the pepper spray easier! Love this giveaway

Reply

I run by myself ALL the time in the early morning dark hours. I would love to try the pepper gel! Would totally make me feel much more at ease when I’m solo running.

Reply

I am going to order these! I have pepper spray but like the idea of the gel. A young runner in San Diego was attacked and killed a few years ago. She was the same age as my son. She was a cross country runner, running by herself in daylight around a lake. I so wish she had these safety devices to possibly save her life. In memory of Chelsea, all runners should carry pepper gel and an alarm. Be safe!

Reply

I live in an area where there are bears, so I would definitely get the Frontiersman Bear Spray! I would feel a lot safer running on our trails if I had that.

Reply

I would love the runner pepper gel with hand strap in pink as I often run alone before it gets completely light out.

Reply

I love the alarm!

Reply

I love these items! I run alone in the early morning before work and I’m constantly on edge. Crime is up in our city and while I always run with my phone, it may not help me if I’m not able to access it quick enough. I would love to have the 3-n-1 Spray!

Reply

Runner Pepper Gel with hand strap!! In pink!!!??

Reply

I would love the pepper gel! Running alone can be a bit nerve-wracking at times when you encounter others, and I think the easy access of the gel strapped to your hand would make your sense of safety much greater.

I ALWAYS have my pepper spray when i run. That alarm, though, is something else. What a great idea. I know just having that on me would make me feel so much safer.

Thank you for this eye opening post. I worry constantly about the safety of my children and don’t think about doing the same for myself. I’d love the pepper gel in black. Lead by example!

This is such a timely post. I tried to run with my old pepper spray on Saturday morning in the dark and realized it didn’t work anymore. I could definitely use the “Runner Pepper Gel with Adjustable Hand Strap” in pink (since pink is just my style). Thanks!

Reply

I would like the runner pepper gel with the black hand strap…. Although that alarm looks great, too. I run 97% of the time alone, and don’t carry anything, although I do let someone (usually my husband) know where I am. I also use the Glympse app if running in an unfamiliar area. I have had a few scary incidents over the years, and lately a 3-legged dog in my neighborhood seems determined to get me.

Reply

It drives me crazy that in MA we can’t have pepper spray mailed to us – I think i need to drive to NH to get some because it would make me (and my mother and my husband) much happier.

Reply

The runner alarm! I already carry The Runner Sanre Red Pepper Gel with me when running so the alarm would be a great supplement to my Sabre Red Gel.

Reply

Duathlete Pepper Gel please!!!! I am training alone for my first triathalon and this is soo perfect!!!

I would love any of the runner gel sprays! I always carry a spray and my phone with me now. I got attacked by 2 pit bulls a couple of years ago when running by myself. I wish I had spray then. I had my phone but dropped it. Was blessed when someone came down the road and could rescue me. I never run without spray or phone. I would live to try this brand!

Reply

Thanks so much for this post. I’ve always worried about wind blow-back in the event I ever (God forbid) needed to use my pepper spray while running. I am definitely going to check out these products. Great information as always!! xo

Reply

I need the runner pepper gel. I used to run with pepper spray that my then-boyfriend bought for me. It’s been lost over the years and now my husband admonishes me every time I run that I need more. My outside runs always happen in the daylight, but some happen in wooded areas of popular parks just out of sight of people.

Reply

I would love the pink pellet gel spray. A runners safety is no joke. I usually run when it is dark out, in high school my best friend and I would get up at 5:30am and go running together (it was so much cooler, and we still had time to get ready before school). There were a few scary things that happened to us and it does make you worry. I always carry my phone but sometimes you just might not be able to make it on time to dial 911. These products look amazing, I will definitely have to invest in them!

Reply

After graduating From college, I’ve come to realize how spoiled I was to always have my teammates running beside me. Living and running by myself I should really be more prepared for these kinds of situations. I would love to try out any of the pepper sprays for runners :)

I like the key ring version for when I’m out and about and the adjustable hand strap version for running.

The spray with the strap is such a great idea! I run at 4:30 every day and sometimes have to run by myself if my friends back out last minute. I don’t like it but I am lit up like a Christmas tree with all my running lights and stick to the main roads so I feel a little better. Need some! :)

Reply

Runner safety is so important! I hardly ever run by myself and if I do, I make sure to run at popular parks and roads. I listen to my music loud enough for me to hear as well as listen to things going on around me. I usually either run with my husband or my dog. I feel pretty safe running with my dog, while she is very friendly, she’s huge, which tends to scare off people, plus if she decides to bark, she can be pretty loud. Plus she’s an awesome motivator! If I run early in the morning or late at night, I’ll wear a reflection vest over my clothes and i’ll put on a light up collar around my dog. I also always run with my phone! I’ve been lucky to never have anything happen to me while running… and i’d like to keep it that way! Oh and if i were to pick, I’d choose the pepper gel.

Reply

I would love the runner pepper gel. I’ve never wanted to carry pepper spray or gel before, but we’ve had an uptick in assaults on my city’s most popular trail. I don’t feel comfortable running there anymore, but sometimes it is unavoidable (the trail links my neighborhood to other parts of the city I run in).

Reply

I would love the runner pepper gel in black. There have been times where I would have felt a lot safer with this in hand!

My husband and I talk about this frequently! I like the dual athlete armband and paper spray. We love being outdoors and I feel like this would help easy my mind while we run and crosstrain.

Reply

I would love to win the runner pepper gel in black. Being a 22 year-old woman (with a few of my own scary instances) I often have a sense of uneasiness if I’m running by myself. I think this is so important for all runners/walkers/bikers/hikers to have!

Reply

Such a great idea for everyone not just runners! I’d love the alarm for those late night neighborhood runs!

Reply

Thank you for the great giveaway. I would order the personal alarm in a heartbeat.

Reply

This is a great giveaway! We all should be cautious with our surroundings, no matter how safe they seem! I am a solo runner, well…I have a Weimaraner :) But on my solo early runs and evening runs my husband always worries about me! We live in a rural community with under 4000 people, and I too feel a false sense of security! You never know, it’s best to be prepared! Sometimes I do think I need it to protect my dog from random dog attacks!! We have had a few scary encounters! And unfortunately, not all are pups are good canine citizens ?
I would like any of these! The fact that they don’t spray back at you in the wind…GOLDEN!! Lol, I run against the wind daily!

Runner pepper gel! Gotta stay safe out there!

Reply

Wow, this is such a great post – thank you! I have thought about getting pepper spray so many times, but didn’t think it would be convenient. This runner-specific spray with the handstrap is perfect. I also like the idea of the wrist alarm! During the summer, I start my runs at like 4:30/5am when it is still dark. Most of the time I feel perfectly safe, but I have had a few of those hair-standing-up-on-the-back-of-my-neck moments when I pray the sun comes up soon! It would definitely make me feel better to carry some protection.
Oh – I would definitely prefer the black :)

Reply

Thanks for the great reminder! As a fellow single mother, I love being able to get out and run whenever possible. It’s unfortunate we have to think about protecting ourselves but we do. I would love the personal alarm! Thank you and I hope you pick me. I could use it :)

Reply

I have a pepper spray from Sabre but should definitely look into the gel option! And I would love the personal alarm. I had a different brand but it stopped working and I haven’t replaced it.

Reply

I would love the personal alarm – would be great to take out on solo runs! I have ran with pepper spray in our old neighborhood but haven’t since I moved. I really need to get back in the habit of taking it on every run; I just don’t because it isn’t that easy to hold.

Reply

I would love the black runners pepper gel and I really like the duo athlete idea. Can use running or biking. I like to trail run and it makes me so nervous to go alone. I usually go with a friend who has a dog and the fact of two of us plus a dog makes me feel so much safer but she is not always available so then the question – do I go alone or not go. Answer most of the time – don’t go. This would make me feel a lot better about going. And the fact is that I am 60 and trying to stay healthy without joining a gym -working out Indoors is so hard Thanks

Reply

I need it ALL! I run at 4 am (out of necessity) and it’s 100% dark, all the time. I have pepper spray and run with my phone, but the pepper gel sounds perfect. I’d like the personal alarm, too!

I’ve run away fast from things before too and it is no fun! I would love the pepper jel (in pink), although the alarm sounds like a great thing too!

O need to get myself the pepper gel and the alarm! I run on a very popular and safe trail for most my runs but you can never be too careful! On occasion I have turned around and cut my runs short due to sketchy men on the trail who appeared out of place. Thanks for the reminder to always stay safe!

What a great idea. I recently started running outside but I hate taking my phone with me since its larger. I’d love the runner pepper gel in pink.

I’ve been looking for something like this for my solo runs! I would LOVE to win the pink Runner Pepper Gel. *Fingers crossed*

I think the pepper gel looks very useful! Can never be too safe!

The runners pepper gel with hand strap would be great! I run by myself mostly, so this would be a good thing to add to my running gear.

The runners pepper gel hand strap! It would definitely save me mental energy and peace of mind out on my runs for sure!

What a fantastic product!!! I am in college and always have pepper spray in my backpack/in my bag with me at night and also have it on hand during my summer job (I’m often alone at work). Pretty much the only time that I DON’T have pepper spray on me is when I’m running so this is something that I would definitely use a bunch! I’m having a hard time deciding between The Runner and The Duathlete but the pepper gel is such a cool idea.

I’d love the runner pepper gel! I live in a relatively safe neighborhood but I always do my runs in the morning before the sun comes up because it gets so hot (I’m in Florida) and you just never know. I’d love this extra layer of protection. Thanks!!

I really like the idea of having the personal alarm and the hand pepper gel. I might order it for myself…can’t be too safe out there!

LOVE this! I really love more scenic, isolated areas for running, but stick to the polluted, high-traffic areas for safety. I need to get the GEL and maybe the ALARM too, so I can spend more time on the scenic trails! I’d like to think that I could go all Avengers on an attacker, but….no. :)

The pepper gel! I often forget that running can be dangerous. I always feel safe, because I stick to neighborhood runs, but this is a reminder that nowhere is 100% safe.

I cannot even begin to say how important I think it is to be safe when running. I would love some pepper gel.

I’m a Biker so Cyclist Pepper spray would be my choice.

I have had people tell me that I should run with pepper spray or something, but I have never gotten any. I would love to have the pepper gel!

I love the pepper gel with the hand strap! I’ve taken to wearing shorts with pockets on log runs so I can carry my pepper spray with me, but it gets to be pretty uncomfortable. You can never be too careful! Having it strapped right to my hand with easy access would make everything so much easier in case a bad situation did arise. I might order one for myself if I don’t end up winning :)

I would love one of the college combos! I never feel unsafe running on campus, but it would be great to have another form of security!

Pepper gel in pink and runner alarm.

I’ve been meaning to get something like this for a while now. The pepper gel with hand strap looks perfect!

I love that they make the pepper gel so you don’t have to worry about it blowing back on you! I usually run with friends but this would make me feel so much safer when I do run by myself!
