Woman in Running

As usual, I was doing my 10km run alone around the UM campus on Wed nite. Due to the uncertainty work schedule, it’s not easy to compromise my running schedule with others in weekday.

It was about 9pm, a lot of vehicles passing by me and I believe some of them were public from outside like me.

Well, I’m wondering what’s wrong with a lady running alone. Most of the time I was mentally harassed by the horns/whistles/funny words coming from guys in their cars/motorbikes when they see a lady is running. They were showing their childish attitude and poor moral in their personality. Did our education system teach them to have fun by doing so?

I felt very sad and disappointed to this scenario… *sob*sob*

First of all, we (female) are not being respected.
Secondly, they never respect or appreciate the sports.

We can’t expect everyone in the country to have pleasant personality, yet I still feel it is unfair to women. Why most of the times women are the victims?

This leads me to another question, women, why are we always being the victims? Being a victim is not supposed to be our destiny, we have to be strong and brave, do not be afraid of standing up to defend ourselves if the people trying to challenge our limit.

I feel glad that every time I can have a safe run in UM campus at nite especially after passing the hilly road at the back of the campus.

Some of you might want to comment that I should run in appropriate time and venue. Yes, I agree, but I also want to comment that, to those people, please behave yourselves!

I am more concern with the safety of a runner who goes jogging alone at night, either a guy or a girl. I think UM campus is still safe. Night is dark. So, runner must be careful with other vehicles.
