Is it bad that I want to start running mainly to be seen? I like the health benefits and feeling after etc but ive felt really **** lately (I won’t bore you with detail) but basically I feel very isolated and feel like going for runs just to be seen by people/cars going by etc. I don’t mean wolf whistled or anything like that I’m not attractive but just to be out there.

I live in an estate by myself and feel very out of the way from life

I wish I had the confidence, on my runs I hate it so much when a car goes past me or someone is walking on the same path lol

I usually do more because it annoys me but lately I’ve felt really down (some sort of devastation/heartbreak going on) I think I’m losing my mind a bit and I don’t care about others seeing me at the moment.

You go for runs for whatever reason you need to! If it helps you - it’s worth it. Dw what others think and hope you feel better soon reach out for support if you need it

Kind of, because to achieve being seen you'd have to run through busy areas and alongside roads with traffic and fumes, so you won't get up much speed and counteract any health benefits. You won't be concentrating, and that can lead to accidents and injuries. Plus you'll stress if it's quiet.

Why not go for a long walk or get involved in community work or volunteering for a charity to meet people? Do you work?
