Hey y’all. Last Tuesday I told you about the Defend Six, a safety wearable that alerts you when someone is approaching. The kickstarter campaign launched last night. It’s an all or nothing campaign and they have 30 days to raise the funds to get this thing going. I am providing the link here. If you can’t help fund the product, please help spread the word. Every little bit helps. This is a product we could all use and I would love to see it out there on the trails!
Most of you are probably aware of Gabe Grunewald and her cancer battle. During the summer she continued to train and race, all while enduring chemotherapy treatments. Sadly, the treatments did not work. Gabe posted a message on her Instagram page recently about her latest cancer treatments and what’s next for her. Despite everything she’s gone through she remains an optimist and an inspiration.
The last thing in the world anyone in Gabe’s position should have to deal with is finances. Thankfully AthleteBiz has set up a fund for Gabe to help offset some of the expenses she and her husband will undoubtedly incur. You can donate here. If anyone can beat this, it’s Gabe, she truly is awe inspiring.
Lastly, just in the last week two runners were struck and killed by automobiles. The first, Janet Pickney, 66 of Atlanta, Georgia, and just yesterday Linda J. Evans, 66 of Columbus, Ohio. I’d like to extend my condolences to both women’s families.
Be careful out there. Be mindful of vehicles, and stay safe.
Tell me one thing you do to protect yourself while out running.
