Female Running Safety – A True Story about Being in an Uncomfortable Situation

Hello Runners,

We made it to the last month of 2020. One more to go and we start a fresh new year.

Though things will still be rough at the beginning of 2021, let’s hope as the year progresses things turn around and improve and bring our lives closer to normal. And especially live running races back without the worry of cancellations.

I hope each of you had a nice Thanksgiving holiday with whomever you could spend it with this year. My girlfriend Tracy and I celebrated with a feast. Seems we were eating leftovers for the following three days. Not complaining.

Tracy and I also walked the Give Back Half-Marathon, a virtual half-marathon, put on by Fleet Feet in Burbank and Encino, California. We chose to do it at the Cherry Creek State Park in Denver. This is a nature filled park and we had a wonderful time enjoying the peace and quiet. Tracy is very strong and did well. I am very proud of her.

If you have been a listener of the Feel Good Running podcast for some time, you know that I am passionate about female running safety. My guest this episode is Tasha Ina Church. She was my guest on Episode #9 back in March of 2019.

Tasha recently posted on her Facebook Page about a terrifying encounter she had while running. Being a professional Self Defense Instructor and even all the techniques she knows, it was terrifying. She tells the story in this episode.

She also talks about her new Self Defense on-line course that will be available on December 8th. And she is conducting a 7-day virtual Empowerment Challenge that will rock your world. It is titled “When Women Rise.” This will be held December 7-15 for 30 minutes each day. 12:00-12:30 PM EST, 9:00-9:30 AM PST.

Be well and be safe runners. Wear your mask in public. Please be kind and courteous to others and share our love of the sport of running running!

Keep running!

~ Jim
