Safety Tip: Running On Hilly Roads
I have been doing some running to keep in shape as well as to get ready for the Tough Mudder in September. Just a small tip when running on the street when no sidewalk is available: In hilly terrain, be sure you are running on the right side of the road at the lowest point of the hill. This allows the cars behind you the maximum amount of time to see you. Cross over to the left side when coming over a crest. Cars coming over a hill will not have time to move over if you are in the oncoming traffic lane as you crest the hill. Stay safe out there!
