“Dear PoPville,

The news of the female jogger being attacked near Meridian Hill Park has been very upsetting for the female jogging community. Do you think you could ask the community to throw in their suggestions for staying safe while running in the city? In particular, I’d be curious to hear whether anyone has taken a self-defense class they found helpful. I was only able to find one while searching the internet, and their next “basics” class isn’t until July. I’m also curious about registering mace/pepper spray and whether others have found “personal alarms” (noisemakers) helpful.”
