Questions questions

Hmmm. To get to my apartment, you get off memorial just past downtown, turn right at the 2 bars and the mental health place -- pass Hunters Ridge -- thats where all the sex offenders live according to all the notices I get in my mail box. I live right across from the gas station -- if you hit the gay night club, you went to far.

So here's my dilemma -- it's GORGEOUS weather outside. But it's night. So -- is it too careless to go for a jog? What's the safety factor here? Should I just do sit ups instead? I kinda want to go jog.

You can't take Jack with you as a bodyguard?

I'd consider going to sleep and getting up to jog early in the morning .. can be very pretty as the sun rises, especially if it's foggy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it'll be foggy tomorrow.

meh, I think you'll be fine. You don't worry about walking out to your car, do you?

If you're truly worried, carry your keys in your hand. Stick the pointy bits between your fingers so that they will scrap if someone attacks you.

Honestly, I think people are far too worried about random attacks. Random attacks are just that -- random. They're also infrequent. They *can* happen, and, yeah, you can do things to protect against them . . . but they're not anywhere near as prevalent as people would lead us to believe.

Why don't you jog towards the gay nightclub? I can't imagine that the guys hanging out there would give you any trouble.

becki, you still read!

And I guess after all these positive responses, I'll jog on my street. And yes, random attacks are rare -- but then if I did happen to be mugged or whatever (not like I'd have any money on me -- but hey, they might not know that) then everyone would call me a huge moron for taking a jog in my neighborhood late at night.

Oh and as to "do it in the morning" nuh-uh. Doesn't work like that. I HATE excercizing -- only do it because I HAVE to. When I have an actual whim to do it -- I must do it right then because there's no fucking way I'm dragging my ass out of bed earlier than I have to to go sweat. No.
