A woman loved her early morning runs, but they enraged her neighbors as it set off their motion sensors. Here is what she had to say:
She Went On Early Morning Runs
The woman said, “I like to go for a run in the morning before I go to work. I usually set out around 5:00 AM so I can make sure to get at least 5 miles in at a time before having to get ready for work.”
It Triggered Security Lights
Depending on the time of year, the woman explained that she either ran around sunrise or finished before it. As she ran past people’s houses, it would trigger the security lights of people’s houses in the neighborhood.
People Were Annoyed
Complaints started pouring in about the lights being triggered and dogs becoming agitated. Several people in the neighborhood with doorbell cameras even posted videos of the woman running by. She was easily identifiable because she wore a headlamp and flashers to make sure cars saw her.
All of this was being discussed on the Nextdoor app, and the woman decided to chime in to apologize for any inconvenience caused. However, she was met with hostility, and people suggested she change her route or show more respect.
She Didn’t Want To Change Her Routine
Some even advised her to run in the afternoon or evening instead. She responded by explaining that she couldn’t remember which house had what lights or dogs, and running in the morning was important to her well-being throughout the day. She pointed out that she didn’t complain about sprinklers that drenched her because they weren’t calibrated properly.
Her Neighbors Were Very Annoyed
The backlash continued, and the woman received nasty notes and faced further criticism through videos and comments. Some suggested she get a gym membership to avoid these issues.
She Tried To Explain To Them
The woman explained, “I responded that I love to run in the morning because it makes me feel good throughout the day to which someone said, “Yeah try getting woken up by some jerk who won’t be neighborly enough to just go to the gym!”
She Enjoyed Her Early Morning Runs
However, the woman disliked running on a treadmill and preferred the solitude and beauty of running in the early morning. She saw no reason to pay for a gym membership when she could enjoy her runs in the peaceful darkness and witness the sunrise.
Was The Woman In The Wrong?
Her best friend suggested she should run later to avoid the neighborhood’s discontent, but the woman was hesitant because it would disrupt her morning routine, so she turned to the internet for advice.
The Internet Responded
One person said, “They bought the motion sensor lights, and didn’t calibrate them correctly. They bought the dog, and let him bark when he hears any damn thing. And then they get mad at you for existing at 5 am? Unless you are doing something to intentionally set these things off, you’re fine. Maybe these neighbors need a crate or a white noise machine.”
Another Person Commented
“Their lights would flash on and their dogs would bark if it was a car, a newbie cyclist, or a rabbit/homeless cat/feral dog running in front of their houses. What does it matter if it’s you? They can’t yell at the animals or cyber shame the occasional vehicle, so they’re choosing to take out their frustrations on you. Maybe they can get out and run too and this wouldn’t be such an issue!”
