How might your presence be affecting other people? What is your relationship to them? How might aspects of your identity shape the ways that you're interacting with other people? How might your own identity shape how you interpret what's going on? Be reflexive. How does what you're learning help you answer your research question? What new ideas do you have this time, versus during your first hour of participant observation? What else do you notice? Write down anything that seems interesting or important.

Field Notes Notes Part Two I took my notes from last time and thought up some reasons as to why this would be the case and then I went and talked to some people and asked if my thoughts were accurate I talked to a few females who were running outside o Female #1 (runner outside) 5 Anthropology 104 | Field Work Project 2
I asked her why she was working out outside rather than in a gym She said she liked being outside more and she did longer distance workouts which she preferred to do outside rather than on a treadmill I asked her if she felt comfortable at the gym She said she felt comfortable for the most part just a little awkward, she didn’t really lift weights or weight train and she talked about how she felt like that was kind of what you had to do at the gym o Female #2 (runner outside) I asked her why she was working out outside rather than in a gym She said she did not really like the gym because she felt out of place I followed up and asked why? She talked about how she didn’t do all the weight training a lot of guys do in the gym, so she just didn’t really like going there o Female #3 (exerciser in gym) I asked her why she liked working out in the gym She said she did more weight training and body building so she chose the gym because she did not have all of the equipment at home I asked her if she felt comfortable in the gym She said yes because she just kind of kept to herself and the workouts she was doing were similar to what the guys she saw were doing o Male #1 (biker outside) I asked him why he liked working out outside rather than in the gym He said he like biking the best and to get in a good workout you usually had to go a longer distance, so it was more enjoyable to do that outside I asked him if he felt comfortable in gyms He said yes, he does not feel weird if he goes into one o Male #2 (exerciser in gym) I asked him why he liked the gym He said his main form of exercise was weightlifting and he liked the gym atmosphere Comfortable in gym?
