Dear "Friendly" Drivers,
Aren't ANY of you RUNNERS??
Normally I LIKE friendly drivers! Normally I like it when someone lets you over or yields when they are suppose to. Normally I like it when they are courteous and aware of others on the road.
But when I am RUNNING and I go the LONG WAY AROUND the Round A Bout, and I am coming up to the curb and you SEE ME COMING...
DON'T BE NICE.
DON'T GIVE ME THE WAVE TO CROSS THE STREET AND WAIT FOR ME.
Don't you KNOW I am TRYING to get a BREAK?? That I WANT to stand on the curb, pretending to check my heart rate or stretch my legs. I want just 9 seconds to recover while I am "waiting" for the cars to pass. (that is why I GO the LONG WAY around the round about- 3 more chances for a break!!) I want to pretend that I am bummed that I have to wait for YOU to pass before I can get back to my workout. But I don't.
I WANT THE BREAK.
SO if you see me running, and I am coming up to the curb with a look of anticipation- it is an act.
Keep Driving. Don't be so nice. You aren't doing me any favors. :)
