The article that I just read told me the police have said:
"that investigators believe her death was an "isolated act" and not random, saying joggers and other recreationists shouldn't have to worry about a killer on the loose in that area."
But how do you not worry? This happened sometime on Sunday, after my 10 mile run on Saturday along the same path. The half marathon that I am running in less than 3 weeks is the same route. Will I feel different when I run past the place that they found her?
I don't know what to feel. It hard to wrap your head around something like this. In a place where you always felt safe.
But this is just ANOTHER reminder that we all need to be safe and cautious on our runs. Go with a partner when you want to run those isolated trails. Run near busy roads. Tell people where you are going (and what you are wearing). Use a treadmill.
