So this happened in my town the other day:
Jogger raped at LaFortune Park - FOX23 News
A 19-year old was jogging at 6:30 in the morning when a stranger attacked and raped her. It's horrible and scary and happened right across the stree from where I go workout at 6:30 in the morning every day.
It freaked me out.
Now I've jokingly talked about self defense in the past. Cue the video:
My Ignite Tulsa speech, where I curse and kick ass
But this legit freaked me out. Doing a 360 looking for dangerous people, having a heart attack when someone got into their car while I was on alert, I legit screamed at a dude once when he rounded the corner after his morning workout.
So I armed myself with mace and stopped tweeting while walking across the darkened parking lot so I can be aware of what's going on around me.
What kind of precautions do you take to stay safe while you're getting fit?
