Once in the industrial area the street lighting pretty much disappeared. The fog and lack of street lights left me with extremely bad visibility. I almost ran into a couple of people - they must have been surprised as this runner clad head to ankle in black (the shoes were red) came from out of nowhere and almost knocked them flying at this hour.
I doubled back and entered an even darker zone, my plan was to cut through an alleyway I had found a few weeks earlier. I could barely see a thing and continued the route from memory. I found the alleyway and here the visibility went down to zero. I had to walk briefly. As I was walking I suddenly felt quite scared, then something touched my leg. I was terrified and started to ease back into a jog. I thought about turning back but that's where the 'thing' was. I wanted to run but I knew that somewhere ahead was a metal gate, and I didn't want to run into it.
