I've got the power!
March 23, 2011
And there must have been some sort of race today, because I ran into several swarms! Dressed in speedy looking helmets, and fluorescent shirts sporting as many company logos as possible, they made the bike path I was running along decidedly scary.
But then I saw something: the cyclist in the front made a gesture with his right hand, and this gesture was passed along! And when it reached the back of the swarm, they swarmed to the side, kindly offering me space!
I felt drunk with power! As a mom I often feel helpless, but as a runner I have the power to move whole groups of cyclists!
