For those of you that have actually been following my blog, you might recall that last summer I wrote around the lady that stole my parking spot in a Trader Joe’s parking lot in Delaware and also just how I reacted to this injustice. Well, now tbelow was an injustice committed on among my running mates and I am creating about it! I assumed that by sharing the story I would in some method carry light to the injustice, sell some support, and also aid regain balance to the world.

Here’s what happened…

We are a group of about 25 – 30 women running through the roads of London. Sometimes we can run in 3’s, or 2’s, yet sometimes we need to run in a solitary file because of people and also web traffic. We attempt to be extremely respectful of motorists, bicyclists and also walkers. As we ran via Little Venice (remember my article this week around the area through canals) some of the gals were on the sidewalk and a couple of were on the street by the edge of the sidewalk. Unfortunately, I did not eye witness the occasion. I only heard the aftermath sounds. All of sudden we heard a bicycle bell ring. The cyclist rang it multiple times as he/she passed the expensive team. Typically we make way for the passing bicycles. And then every one of sudden the bicycle rider punched among my friends, that had actually remained on the edge of the street, out of her means. I don’t understand also why this cyclist did not attempt to sluggish dvery own, sheight, or move further right into the quiet street. Tbelow was ample area and also time to react in. What violent habits, “Let me simply punch the person that is in my way”. I unexpectedly heard a gasp from the team as my frifinish recovered and also yelled a retaliating comment to the bicycle rider. The culprit was a lady in a tweed jacket. What unmeant behavior from someone in this exceptionally polite and appropriate nation. I think this act would be thought about “attack & battery” in other places.

I felt really poor for my friend. It’s excellent I did not witness this event or that it did not occur to me because I have a little of an overactive “injustice” meter. I understand I would have actually been compelresulted in attempt out my unmatched sprinting abilities in order to catch up via the culprit that had actually stopped at a light ahead. And just like I cornered my parking spot thief at the store this past summer, I would have actually pointed out to this lady her incorrect actions towards my frifinish. Destiny also led us amethod from the crazy cyclist lady as we took a different course to hers. I understand it’s not great to let these poor things affect us. We continued running. All I could perform was be empathetic and remind both my friend and also me that tbelow is a balance in the cosmos and also that these habits do not go unchecked. We later on laughed together as we commented exactly how the lady reminded us of the Wicked Witch of the West, of Ms. Gulch riding her bicycle this time sporting tweed.

We continued running while we reenacted the music to this certain scene of the Wizard of Oz movie. And then with each stride that we ongoing to take, we gently shifted topics to a lot happier ones.
