Found this on a Local Town's Running Website

“The Road Runners Club of America recommends against the wearing of headphones in races. The RRCA also urges extreme caution in the use of headphones in training or running, particularly in isolated areas. Headphones can prevent a runner from hearing approaching vehicles. Headphones, particularly on a woman runner, may aid a potential attacker intent on assaulting a runner due to the inability of the runner to hear. The RRCA regards headphones as a safety hazard in a running event and recommends that RRCA sanctioned race prohibit the wearing of headphones.”

I would also add that African Americans should avoid wearing headphones in areas that are heavily populated by dogs. Just ask T about running in the park last week.

But the wearing of headbands is highly advocated, cause you look awesome.

Yea... Stupid Dog followed us for 2miles. Just imagine me praying and running at the same time.

Me and Godsey had a dog follow us once for a real long time, before it pretty much ran out to the main road in an attempt to kill itself.

Actually ladies should beware while wearing headphones, because one of the chicks at FHR told me she was attacked by some little hood children the other day on Fort Ave. They ran with her for a few hundred meters and then attempted to rip her iPod off her arm.
