I’m sure that many people have run across this, but it still fascinates me. It is shocking to me the number of men that try to holler at me while I’m out running. Does it not look like I’m busy?? Not only that but I am not looking my best when I run. I’m not one of those cutesie runners. Who has perfect hair pulled back into a cute ponytail or bun, with mascara and lip gloss on, a tank top, and cute running shorts. No. I’m usually in leggings or pants, some sort of t-shirt with sleeves that I can wipe my sweat of with, a sweatband and my hair in my tiny little afro, while listening to my iPod. Oh and depending on whether or not you catch me at the beginning or end of a run I might be heaving.
Nothing about how I look when I run looks attractive or says, “Hey! I’m a single gal interested in my health and being physically fit looking for a guy who does the same. Interested applicants please interrupt my run.” Negative. When I’m running I mean business. Get my miles in, clear my head, listen to good music, then go home and go about my day. Matter of fact, if you interrupt me while I’m running for no other reason then to chat with me. You may get a death glare or a few choice words. And if you just have to know more about me. Write a post on Craiglists missed Connections. I’ll probably never see it , but hey, at least you tried.
