As I made my way around the lake, I came to Ravenna Boulevard and decided to add some mileage on by running up it. I had run this route a few times before with my running group on Saturday mornings. As I began running underneath the I-5 bridge, I felt a little unsafe because I saw a man walking in my direction who had a dark hoodie on and blue jeans. It was only 6:20 in the morning, so I figured maybe he was just out on a walk and it seemed a little bit off but not too alarming. I continued running. I made my way back towards Green Lake, and I saw another woman who I thought I knew who was also running. I thought to myself, “Maybe I should say hi if I catch up to her!” I never saw her again.
I was about 4 miles into my run when all of a sudden I felt someone come up from behind me
