The only time I got kind of harassed while running was in Mumbai. And it happened again today! Some nasty comments by a young chap standing with his girlfriend. I wonder why people feel the need to be unpleasant. It also made me feel grateful for the running community back home which has helped create a safe space for those who go alone.
The roads in this part of the city are quite bad, mostly concrete blocks on a very uneven surface. A stray managed to get mad at me too! Usually they just leave me alone. Maybe I should’ve just stayed off the road today.
As I neared my destination, I bumped into an old friend who hugged my sweaty self which made up for the not-so-nice bits of the run. Some runs…
