In a weeks time I will be moving to London, I am really wanting to continue running when I get there. For some background I'm a 21 year old girl who is about to start a job with my usual hours being around 8am - 6/7pm. I usually run in the morning in a nice little suburb with fellow runners and dog walkers which after reading this article ( theguardian.com/lifeandstyl... ) I realise I have been pretty lucky with and haven't ever suffered any abuse or felt uncomfortable running.
The area of London I am moving to has quite a good amount of greenery and is a lot quieter than many of the other areas in London which is a positive. I fear I wont be able to run in the morning due to time constraints and will have to start running in the evening. As it gets darker in the winter months I am not sure if it will be safe for me to run on my own ? Does anyone who runs in London have any advice ?
I don't have any friends in the area yet so I don't have a running buddy and I would love to join a running club but it seems most of them start around 6pm which makes it difficult for me to attend I am probably overthinking it but I just want to be able to go running and still feel safe
