Just A Girl

I'm just a girl
Guess I'm some kind of freak
'Cause they all sit and stare with their eyes.

A funny thing happened during my Sunday run. As I was running on the pavement next to a busy road near where I live a man in a car drove past me and beeped me several times in quick succession. He made a few gestures but he was going to quick for me to see what they were.

I was too busy on Sunday to blog about it. So I thought to myself, 'The next time this happens I can blog about it and use 'Just a Girl' by No Doubt as the song for the post.'

Now isn't that a fucking depressing state of affairs?

The next time

The next time

The next time


Turns out I didn't have to wait long.

I went for a run this afternoon at around 4pm because I'm off work and able to take advantage of running when it's light so I can see where I'm going and take a few traffic-free paths that aren't lit at night. As I was running down the high street, listening to music and enjoying myself I got beeped by two men in an orange transit-style van. The one nearest to me had his window wound down and he yelled something but I couldn't hear him over the sound of the music playing on my iPod. I didn't react and continued running, like I do every time this happens.

I already have another song lined up for the next time this occurs.

Today's run: Slow 4 miles in 39:20
