>Cross Training>Another car vs biker
The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
We had a couple of bikers hit in our little town this past July. The driver was texting( ) and mowed over two bikers...one died.
The saddest part is her husband passed away from cancer a couple of years ago and their two children are now orphans.
Charges are pending but that does not mean much to the family left behind.
I run the road she died on almost every run. It is hard not to think about what happened.
Runners seem to have a bit of an advantage as they can run towards the cars while bikers, sadly, have to ride with the traffic flow.

Recently a cyclist in my state was mowed down by a car going at high speed from the other lane (i.e., going the other direction) -- it swerved across the road and ran him over.
I don't think there is any "being safe" that protects you from getting run over by a car at high speed swerving across the road and hitting you, except staying off the roads entirely
It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
