How To Prevent Getting Attacked While Walking, Jogging, Running or Hiking

One of the most enjoyable things a person can do is exercise and many people choose to do it outdoors. Due to time restrictions in this hectic world, a jogger, runner, walker or hiker have a routine that they follow. Most of the time they follow the same path, go at the same time every day or every other day and usually do it alone.

The recent murder of Meredith Emerson, a hiker in Georgia, is yet another example of a victim that was enjoying the outdoors while hiking. Although, the media has not indicated if she did or did not carry any self-defense product. More often than not, most women and men usually do not. They are so focused on their exercise routine and perhaps drinking water that they overlook the possibility of an assault.

It is very important to make it a habit when preparing for your outdoor exercise routine to take with you some sort of self-defense product along with your keys.

Pepper spray is one of the most common self-defense products being used today. It is small, light and usually has a belt clip and/or a key chain. There is even Dog Repeller pepper spray for those all too common stray dogs. This is very convenient when you are on the go. While hiking, you might consider carrying Bear Repellent pepper spray in your backpack. While power walking, you might consider Pepper Spray Walking Weights. These 1 lb. weights actually have a replaceable pepper spray canister inside!

A Stun gun is also an option. They are small and light weight and some are no bigger than the palm of your hand. Some stun guns come disguised as a pager or cell phone so the attacker has no idea that you have protection. For hikers, there is also a real handy non-lethal product that is convenient to have if you are going to camp out during the night. The Stun Baton, which has a flash light and a personal alarm. It is a stun gun, alarm, and flashlight all in one unit. The would-be-attacker would think you are just carrying a flashlight!

Yet another option is at taser. There are several options to choose from here also. Some look like a gun but the latest Taser C2 looks more like an electric shaver than a non-lethal weapon.

So, don't just keep your body in shape, also keep yourself safe and protect yourself with non-lethal self-defense products.
