I was running this morning- I go to pass a street that's fed by an off ramp from an elevated highway.
I check the lights- they're red my way- but it's quarter to 6 in the morning and I don't see any cars, so I continue running across the street... Until I see a car barreling down the offramp at highway speed- I check my peripheral vision- he's got an orange light and was gunning to make it.
He slams on the brakes.
He's not stopping- it's just the screech of tires for what seems like an endless 5 seconds- in the meantime- I'm pick UP speed- so by the time he'd get to where I am now- I'd be on the curb.
Still- that moment of "Oh ****. A truck- heading right for me. At high speed."
Scared the living **** out of me.
What has put your heart in your throat lately?
