Any time I go out at night alone–even just to walk to the store–I carry pepper spray. I’m twenty one years old, blonde, and a 34Dirty Delete, so I am pretty much every “unsavory” man’s dream haha. Fiance will NOT let me go out without some kind of weapon.

I would implore you to please not run alone in the dark. Can you get a running buddy? If you must go alone, at least carry pepper spray. They have some with wrist straps. And maybe take a self-defense class? I have, and although I doubt I’d be able to fight off more than one guy, I can incapacitate an attacker long enough to run away and call for help.

@misabell:  I agree with you. Please don’t run outside at night, especially being unarmed or without a partner. I also carry pepper spray when I’m out at night. I have some locked in my car and some in my purse, since sometimes I get home from work, it’s dark outside and we live in an apartment complex with a creepy old guy as our neighbour (he asked me to give him a ride across town the other day, with just me and him in the vehicle). Better to be safe than sorry.

I agree that its not a good idea to run alone in the dark. I dont the exact statistics but often times people who carry weapons end up having that weapon used against them unless they have some special self-defense training. Definitely get a buddy.
