Many of you have already heard of Bia, the GPS watch designed with women in mind. One of the key features that it comes with is the alarm feature.
I run in a relatively urban area most of the time. In many ways, this is a super safe area to run. Even running alone, I’m very seldom alone. There are always people around me. But even there, I’ve had a few scares over the years. None where I thought I was in serious danger, but several times I’ve altered my planned run path to avoid a potential situation. I also run a lot in new places. Whenever we go on vacation, I’m out there in an area that I only kind of know, relying on my perception of what/where is safe. I ALWAYS run with my cell phone, but in a real dangerous situation, is that going to be enough?
As I write this, Bia only has 16 hours left to make it to their goal. They are close, but not there yet. I supported them, will you?
Go here to support them!
And for your viewing pleasure, a couple of pictures from my run yesterday. Sadly, my iphone + the sun makes it so you can barely see the two really cool bridges in the background.

I supported them too! Love that alarm feature as well as the great design. Really hope they can pull it off today!
I supported them too! I really hope that they get fully funded!
I dont like where I am now so I dont run outside anymore. My dog is not feeling the love anymore. 🙁
I like the idea of an alarm. I run in rural areas mostly, and alone. I do feel vulnerable sometimes. An alarm would be a great help.
