Looks like there was another attack, this time an attempted kidnapping, on the jogging path. There are more of these this year than I remember from previous years. Be careful if you run on this path, hopefully this will stop.

OH MY DEAR LORD! That's my route. 99.99999% of the time I run, that's my route. I know EXACTLY where that attack took place - right near the heavily treed area after before you get to the (what I call the bump out) near the beach at 47th. I've run many runs at night and there have been times when my gut reaction was that I was being watched; you could just feel it and it was creepy. That was the last time I ran at night that far south on the path with no one around. In fact, I don't even run past McCormick Place after dark by myself anymore. Safe my ass. Rest assured, I'm not running too far south anymore unless I have people around me and it's bright daylight....then again, the mobs of 20 on the northside don't care if it's day or night out.

Thanks for posting John! Crying or Very sad Mad

Question: this attack happened last Friday and the police just issued a warning about it on Wednesday night? Shocked
