Too Close For Comfort
I might be sharing the road with drivers but I am using the sidewalk…is it because I am not walking that it compels some to come that close to me or is it that I am that striking that they want to get a better look? Of course the only striking thing about me might be the car against my face.
I honestly don’t know what possesses some drivers to play that joke at runners. Sometimes, it is the obvious “oops, I didn’t see you because I was texting” and other times it is because they seem annoyed to see a runner going up a hill while they are holding the steering wheel with one hand and the phone with the other…buy a bluetooth!!!
Some drivers – most drivers- seem to respect us, cheer, give us thumbs up and a few get so close to the line that the next time they should introduce themselves. Hopefully we won’t be on a stretcher when that meeting takes place.
