Runners that had to miss the Running and Fitness Event for Women can still learn about the latest gear through Runner's World. In her article "6 Cool Products From the Women's Running and Fitness Event," Cindy Kuzma debriefs readers on the event's most intriguing products.
Among the featured products was SABRE's Runner Personal Alarm with Adjustable Wrist Strap. "Unfortunately, most women runners have had at least one close call with a potential attacker, either human or animal," writes Kuzma. "If you can't - or don't want to - carry pepper spray, try the SABRE Runner Personal Alarm with Adjustable Wrist Strap. Pull out the pin and a 130-decibel alarm burns the eardrums of anyone within 1,000 feet (or on the same convention-room show floor, we can attest). Once the threat retreats, pop the pin back in to silence it and prepare for the next round; it's completely reusable."
