Top 5 Things I Do Not Want To See On A Run – but probably will, or already have.
5) A driver, coming towards me, on their cell phone, oblivious to my existence on a narrow road.
4) A big, mean, ugly dog. Running towards me. Without a leash.
3) A group of bored and surly teenagers.
2) A thunderstorm. Heading towards me. On an open plain.
And the number one thing I do not want to see on a run…
The chase van – aka the van that drives slowly along the course of a race and if you see it, it means you are so friggin slow that you’ll never finish the race before they pack it all up and go home, so this van is going to pick up your sorry ass and drive you to the finish.
