So went for a 5k run this morning, about 8:50. Lovely run a few youngsters out with dad on shiny new cycles, all nodding wishing each other a merry xmas. I have a couple of safety rules I have always followed since I started this running journey in April, the main one is when crossing roads or running along lanes where cars go is to take my earphones out so I can hear traffic etc. Had to cross the road at a set of pedestrian traffic lights across a very busy road this morning, the road was not busy today but still took my earphones out. The lights went red for the cars and Green for pedestrians to cross, I looked up as I heard a car travelling at speed towards the red light, my sixth sense told me he wasn't stopping so I decided not to cross, just as well as he did stop but right were I would have been crossing, brakes were slammed on last minute, I was so shocked as he was also on his mobile phone. I didn't think quick enough about getting his car registration number. Do people think they don't have to follow the rules on xmas day. Lucky to be sitting on the sofa telling the tale.
