I just read a post on the blog “Time’s Up!” entitled ‘Born to Run’ that details a horrifying attack on a runner in broad daylight. The lady in the article was running in a place well-known to her, at a time when there was plenty of light, and did not think she’d be assaulted.
She was attacked by a man that she ran by on a park bench – she fought back and was injured, but not as seriously as she could have been. She was able to give them an excellent description of her assailant, which hopefully will help prevent this from happening to another woman.
While on your journey toward loving your reflection, physical activity is critical – the more movement you can incorporate into your day, and your daily routine, the better you will feel and the more you’ll appreciate your body. I just finished my workout for the day – 50 min of strength training and a 30-min walk on the treadmill – and I really appreciate the strength I am developing.
Please take a look at this article – and take the cautions in it to heart. You must not only make exercise a priority, but make your safety when working out in the great outdoors a priority as well.
