Luckily, ever since I started running with a jogging stroller, I've become a much more hesitant runner. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am literally pushing the life of my children ahead of my own. I have learned to never cross a street if there is a car approaching, stop sign or not...it just isn't worth the risk.
Had I been a little less careless today or thinking I was quicker than I am, we could've been hit twice within a couple of minutes. The first lady, never even saw us there, even though we got to the intersection long before her mini SUV...she just rolled to an almost stop before quickly turning right to jump out in front of another car. The second guy, as I mentioned, noticed us and apologized as he was driving away, but nonetheless, was still quite careless. So, please drivers as you are out gallivanting in your big shiny beasts...please look both ways, my kids & I (and my husband) would appreciate it if we all made it home alive.
