This part of the jogging path was secluded from the park. Usually she enjoyed her run in the quiet of the night, but something about the thick copse of trees on each side made her feet move just a bit faster. She felt eyes bore into her back as she broke out into a full run. 

Her breath panted harder as footsteps began to echo hers from behind. They became faster, closer. She didn't dare glance back. Run just run, she told her feet and they might make it out alive.

Nice bit of writing there. Secluded does conjure up dark, doesn't it?

Much better than mine! I for some reason felt I had to actually include the word "flee" in there and of course you don't really have to.

I like what you wrote!
