Make Running Better Life

in Running
Sometimes, we do not run daytime. After a day's work, it is dark outside and you would stick to running. However, running in dark will be dangerous, especially when there are cars pass by. Many methods may avoid accidents effectively. Not only accident will cars bring, but also waste gas, it is full of carbon monoxide, which will be more dangerous to our running health.
Run in dark. Part of runners do exercise at night because they have not time on daytime. It will not be a problem as long as you obey the principles.
Run the different direction with cars. If there is a car passing by, that seems very dangerous, so you would leave the road as soon as possible. Of course, the situation that left the road and enters the unknown dark, there may be trouble. But hit by cars will be worse than the trouble.
Wear a shinny vest or colorful clothes for running. If you forget that, you may wear dark blue long sleeve sweatshirt for running. The driver will know how far should they change the directions, and the result will be quite different.
Running on the trail that you are familiar with. If you want to run up the road, look carefully in advance.
Do not directly view the car headlights. The bright light will make you blind. If the driver does not reduce the beam, you would try to remember road ahead and its shape. Little deviate from the light source can help to use less sensitive to light around the eye.
You would take care of cars not matter day or night. No driver will hurt you deliberately, but some of them are not so clear about their position. We talked before that running toward the cars direction is important. But only one exception: that when faced sharp turn. In the inside of shape turn, drivers do not see very far. So you should always run in the lateral. If you do not run on narrow roads, this will greatly reduce the risk.
Another dangerous stuff is the gas released from cars. I know before that CO is harm to our healthy, but after reading a book, I clearly know how poisonous it is. Dr. Daniel noted that the combination of carbon monoxide and heme is closer than oxygen. They will not disappear in short time and will do continuously harm. So, if the air contains a lot of carbon monoxide when running, or your blood will be full of carbon monoxide. To make half of the carbon monoxide disappear, it needs at least 8 hour sleeping.
The lesson you may get from them is that: do not run in the place full of waste gas. You would find a fellow that can run with you, this can effectively avoid accidents. And if accidents happen, it is easily to deal with that. We can not be sure that every driver will stop when accidents happen. I have heard many accidents happened in dark night, the driver run away and the litigant can not find him any more. I totally do not agree with running in dark roads, but if you would do it, please take care of you.
