After taking a self defense class back in 2008 – you will RARELY find me in public without my pepper spray. I literally get out of the car and put my finger on the trigger just WAITING for an attacker ;)
My main reason for taking the unarmed self defense class was because I had just started running and I was paranoid about running alone. Although you could consider carrying pepper spray being “armed” that’s besides the point ;)
I always try to stress to my girls safety while running and desperately try to convince them to carry pepper spray when they run – but the thing I hear most often is “where do I put it?” I usually run with mine in my hand, but I know that gets annoying for some people so I discovered I could clip it on my SPIBelt.
Well all that is a thing of the past now that I found out about Personal Savers! I saw these brilliant little contraptions at the Georgia Marathon Expo this year. I literally rounded the corner and I SWEAR I squealed!! I almost jumped and hugged the guy standing there.
I’ve been waiting for this EVER since I started running!!!!
Oh yeah, better tell you what it is (if you can’t tell from the photo above) – Pepper Spray You Wear On Your Wrist!!!!!!!!! Well, that’s the “Wrist Saver”, or they have one that will clip on to a SPIBelt or FuelBelt (the “Personal Saver”), and they even make a “Cycle Saver” for bikes!!!
I mean DUH. I can’t believe someone didn’t think of this before!!!!!! Doesn’t matter – the Personal Saver people thought of it and I could just KISS them!!
BUT WAIT (insert infomercial voice here) These aren’t JUST pepper spray wrist things….. they are also SUPER reflective with the silver trim, they contain a little pocket for ID information, AND they come with a little LED light thing!!!!!
That’s like 4 products in 1!!!!
Buy just one and it’s a great price – but if you get all 3 it’s a FANTASTIC price!!!
I went BACK to the expo and got 3 more for my mom and sister (and one to have as a spare) – I’m telling you – I LOVE these things and I WISH it was illegal to run without one!!! I’ve heard too many sad stories lately about runners who were abducted or killed and anything I can do to spread the word on safety I’m ALL about.
