How do I safely find a running buddy in my area?
I’m not scared of anyone but I’m not stupid, either. Besides the fact that I’m a woman, I live in a mostly rural small town with an unusually high crime rate. I borrow my girlfriend’s (large) dog sometimes—which is great!—but she lives 30 min away. From what I can tell (I’ve been here almost two years), people here just don’t care about their health! I’ve got access to a treadmill but it’s just not the same. Any ideas?
