Twice this week it happened. Driving home from work, I saw some runners whom I almost didn't see. Obviously, these jokers need a brush-up on my Winter Running Rules, specifically No. 6.
As a runner, I like to think I'm fairly cautious about looking out for fellow runners when I'm driving. You know, do unto others? Namely, don't squash a runner with your right front fender if you yourself would prefer not to be squashed by another driver's right front fender.
One of these runners I saw actually was wearing a reflective vest, but he was still a bit difficult to see. It should go as a warning that you should do your best to be as visible as possible, but remain aware that sometimes your efforts are still not enough.
Be careful out there. I hate when my readers die off.
Wherein we consider the spiritual path of the Ninja.
FunnyRunner swats a nunchaku at my Ninja running style: "Maybe you're just thinking about it too much. Just run, man. Think about something else ..."
Answer: How Zen. Do Ninjas follow Zen? Or would that make me a Samurai? That could be a Haiku.
Happy Hour is nearly upon us, teammates. Don't spend your weekend in the drunk tank. Run well and drink well. Cheers!
