Daily Note

Content warning. Had a pretty bad incident in the park- gonna be a long log but I need to get this down to help myself a little.

Didn't get great sleep last night. Spent the day at an island about 30 minutes from Auckland, day off basically after academic grind last 48 hours.

Got back and me n Chris started running 7:45ish. We headed out to the park we've been running in. Got to the park and started one of the longer loops. Almost immediately, we ran past a group of 6 or 7 thirtyish year old men. They yelled some stuff but I couldn't understand them so I moved on. About 50 meters later me n chris heard someone running. Then I got totally tackled. I was on the ground and could feel a dude pressing and grabbing me. The man was completely naked. He was just holding onto me, not really letting go. Pushed my way out with Chris's help and sprinted off. We found some pedestrians and used their phone to call the cops. Cops came and got our numbers and report, then said they would go look for the guy and call us with updates.

I was very shaken up after this obviously. Didn't really know what to do. I was feeling a huge mix of emotions. I just wanted to finish the run, I didn't want to let the asswipe ruin the one thing I truly love. So we finished the easy 8 we had planned. Super thankful I had Chris there. Very scary incident, not sure what I'd have done if I had been alone.

Came back and reported it to the prof. Feel thankful I've got the friends around me that I have. This could have been much worse.
