Always tell your roommate, a friend, your mom or sister (anyone you're close to!) that you're heading out for a run and when they should expect you home. Even better, download an app
that lets your loved ones follow you on your route. MapMyRun
has a live-tracking feature you can easily turn on and off. Strava
also just added a safety function, called Beacon, that sends a text to your chosen contacts with a link for live tracking so friends can see if you go off course. One place you shouldn't share your info, though: social media. Feel free to post about your running success, but avoid showing specific routes.
