I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
Running illegally in VA 209/365Liza
I was finishing up the last two miles of a 20 mile run this morning when I got some legal counsel. I was running up a neighborhood street when a guy came out of his house and hollered at me. “It’s illegal to run on the road in Virginia!” I was running on the lefthand side of the road and the streets in the neighborhood were wide. There wasn’t any traffic. I’d seen maybe 4 cars my whole run. I continued on up the street. The guy got in his car and drove past me. He yelled out the window: “It’s illegal to run on the road in Virginia!!” I gave him a thumbs up. I was pretty worked running in the heat and humidity, but I doubt I would have come up with anything to say regardless. The guy gunned his engine and yelled “ASSHOLE!!!!” at me.
Geez. What’s wrong with people these days???
Also, it turns out it is actually illegal in Virginia to run on the roads if a sidewalk is available. Who knew? Still, what goes on in your life that you feel like you need to yell this kind of information at people?
What’s making me happy:
Running: 20 miles easy. There was supposed to be some speed in there, but the humidity squashed me.
