Following on from chris_x_runs post I wanted to gauge what the people of Bristol thought about our wonderful city and how “safe” they feel. I saw many Bristolians comment on Chris’s post saying routes, which I run frequently scared them.
I for one have never let the fear of what could happen stop me, my mindset is I should be able to do what I want, when I want as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone. I should be able to go where I want at whatever time of day I want without the worry of some weirdo 👌🏻 So as you all know I run stupidly early in the morning, totally my choice but I haven’t once felt unsafe, roads, cycle tracks and off the track routes. I’m not stupid I know the risks but then on the other hand why should I have to worry about any risks ?
I won’t let the small actions of a few stop me in any way living my life When running I’ve had guys come up to me, I’ve run past those people you think 🤔 look abit dodge but I maybe naively don’t ever feel unsafe.
When I’m working away I also run around that area at the same time for the same reasons above
I’m not deluded, I know first hand how messed up the world is and the absolutely dreadful people who live out there but I actually couldn’t care less about those people, why should I ?
I get loads of messages about my early morning running, some positive and some telling me essentially what an idiot I am but the majority just genuinely care about my safety i assure you I never put myself in danger on purpose 👌🏻 Ramble over thoughts people ?
