Last night I went for a run. There are some mountains nearby so I thought that I would head towards them. After 3 minutes, I was outside of downtown Pasadena. After 8 minutes, I was the only white person around. After 13 minutes, people were starting to stare as I went running through their 'hood. They definitely aren't used to people running for fun. Every time they heard footsteps behind them the quickly turn around and look to see who is coming up behind them.
The good thing is that I found a way into the mountains. Hopefully I will get to run in them soon.
