I grew up in a southern university town and most of my running was during the early-late 80s in that and one other southern university town. I was between 5'7" 132# and 5'9" 145# (I grew 2 inches in college), so relatively slight of build. I had bottles and trash thrown at me from moving vehicles, countless epithets, and more than a few times I was chased (usually after I made a rude gesture or comment in response to their thrown object or epithet). In most of those circumstances, I was not afraid for my safety at the time - I usually tend to the "fight" mode when adrenalized - but in hindsight after my run I was always aware of the potential danger that I avoided. The thing is, though, I never ever set out on a run with any thought paid to my personal safety on the run. While I agree that the 4% number reflects under-reported harassment, the number may accurately reflect that, for the most part, men view harassing experiences as isolated incidents. They are simply things that happened to us while on a run.
