Morning run cut short. . .

by some creep-tacular guy in a four door blue car. He drove by me, no biggie, cars go by all the time. The creepy part was that he stopped farther down the road. When I saw him, he was leaning against the front quarter panel of his car, smoking, with his the door open, and the car running. My intuition flickered and my mind started thinking about self-defense. I've run this road twice a week since the end of March. My family and I walk this road 3-5 times per week. This is a "safe" road. Normally people on the road don't bug me and I get "enjoying the view," but this guy was off. After I was past him, I decided not to run back, but to go to the store at the end of the road and call my hubby to pick me up. The store workers were very understanding!! Thankful that things turned out the way they did.
I'm not a person who is easily scared!! I laugh during horror movies, have visited prisons in a third world country, and have walked many dark roads alone. This was different. Contemplating carrying pepper spray from now on. Seems kinda silly, but might make sense.
I feel like someone must have been praying. Thank you!!
