I’m talking to you road runners. No not
You, who run in the road every morning with a quarter-size flashing light, I am talking to you. Gladly I share the road, moving over to allow you ample space to jog merrily along. However, your little, poorly placed pin light gets lost in your huffing, puffing, thrashing run. So imagine me traveling at 50 mph on a poorly lit road and suddenly my headlights spot you. Do not get mad at me if I cannot scoot over. Perhaps investing in a reflector vest or better night-lighting is in order.
If not, the sidewalk, less than 10 feet away, is pothole, debris free. Try using it. In the early morning hours, be seen or hit the pavement, sidewalk style.
