Well, obviously they're runners, and they like pain, so there's that. But honestly. Here are some tips for when you run at night:
2. At least wear a white shirt. And that's only if you literally cannot afford a reflective vest or some sort of weird miner light.
3. Wear a reflective vest or some sort of weird miner light. Is your life not worth fifteen bucks?
4. Run as close to the curb as is reasonable. The road is better on your legs, but it's also for vehicles, and not really for you.
5. For the love of all that is holy, run against the traffic. If you run with the traffic, you cannot see the cars that are nearest to you. If they don't see you, you're dead.
So stop running at night in the middle of the road with your back to traffic in your black workout clothes with your headphones on. Unless you actually want to die. In which case, I guess it's fair.
