To give you the background, its election time in Kenya right now which means that at any moment, things COULD kick off big time, so it's a good idea to stay away from crowded places, basically just stay at home.
But being at home allllllllll day is boring and sitting still isn't something I'm good at :)
I decided to go for a run around the secure neighbourhood I'm staying in, and what I love about this neighbourhood is that you could even run around here after dark and you'd be safe, there are security guards and people everywhere.
So at 6.30pm I was suffering from cabin fever and decided I would go for a run. I don't really run anywhere most of the time.
So I'm running around the estate with my headphones blaring some Pitbull and I'm vaguely aware of someone behind me, so I stop and turn around to see 7 Kenyan children/teenagers running behind me laughing their heads off and jogging just like me.
Well I felt like Forrest Gump!
It was so funny, they were so cute and asked if they could take a photo of me on their phone, even though I
In conclusion: Go running in 30 degree heat. You'll sweat but you'll feel good and meet people you might not otherwise meet :)
