Safety Tip for Life!
This is my tip for the week which everyone SHOULD follow..... every time they walk in public!
WALK AGAINST TRAFFIC!!!
The reason I thought of this, yesterday I set out for my normal 2 mile walk, I turned right off my street like I always do, going with traffic. About 1/4 mile into it a van passed me going the opposite way. It was an older beat up van and both guys in it stared at me all the way by..... it gave me the creeps! Then I worried the whole time about them turning around and coming up behind me with their van door open and throwing me in before I knew what happened. I was looking over my shoulder my entire walk.
When you're walking with traffic, anybody can come up behind you without you knowing.... especially for those of us wearing headsets and cant hear whats coming! So walk against traffic and see whats coming your way!
October is almost over, how did you do on your goals? I will post my results and set new ones for November tomorrow :)
Before I go, does anyone else ever get swelling in your hands when you walk?I ask because I do and was wondering why. Also I was asking mostly because I was wondering if anyone is paying attention ;-)
