I've been running on a new Greenway and have had some problems with stray dogs. Has anyone ever used pepper spray when running.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I haven't had need to use it, but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't do the trick -- as long as you don't mind carrying it.

1. Tell no one
2. Consider this: is it legal in your state; I do agree, however, sfaety comes before "legality."
