Awareness of your environment

Awareness of your environment
i.              If you know a neighborhood is well known for crime don't go there
ii.            Stay away from conflict as much as possible, because if you don't you will find yourself right where you don't want to be. In a place that you will not be able to get out of
iii.           Make sure someone you trust knows your daily routine and schedule (parent, friend, sibling) as well as how to get in touch with you at any given time of the day. Have an emergeny plan with them
v.              Avoid walking/run/jog alone in areas that aren't well populated
Wait for some one else to go out with you or find some where to do your activity---gym, tread mill, school track (again make sure many others are there—even if it means that you might have to ask a parent or friend to wait for you while you run around the track a couple of times—if a person loves you they will be willing to do things that help protect you from harm)
