Pay Attention When Running To Music

I almost caused a bad accident recently.

Running on a beautiful morning, I was listening to my music as I ran.  Tuning everything else out as I ofent do, I forgot how busy the intersection was that I was navigating.  As I ran across the entrance to an interstate, a group of cars approached me from my right.  And they weren't slowing down!

I was able to reverse course just in time, but it illustrates the point of taking care to pay attention to your surroundings when we lose ourselves on a run.  This article posted by Christine Luff on reminded me of this valuable lesson, particularly when we're listening to music with earbuds.
