This morning Carolyn and I headed to Percy Warner Park to run the 5.8 (+ the Luke Lea add-on). It was good. All was well... until towards the end of the run... I heard someone behind me... and it sounded like they said... "BIKE!" So... I hightailed it to the right side of the road... and while doing so, I heard the same person say... "RIGHT! RIGHT!" in an annoyed voice and so I moved rather sheepishly over to the left side of the road.
And as the bike whizzed by, I decided to tell him why the confusion... (because, I love cyclists! I've got some good friends who are cyclists and I like to think that I'm a runner who is cycler-friendly. PLEASE CYCLISTS LIKE ME!).
"Aren't bikes supposed to pass on the left? I'm used to hearing.. on your left!"
no response, so I continued...
"I thought you said BIKE, which is an honest mistake, because BIKE sounds a lot like RIGHT."
still no response, so I got a little annoyed and continued...
"And you know what doesn't sound like anything else? LEFT."
And by the that point he was pretty far ahead of us, yet I was still giving him the finger.
