There are times when I lose hope in humanity. One of those times was today.
I was finishing up my run (lucky I had already split off from Carly) and on a main road heading back towards my house when I was blindsided by someone throwing liquid out of their truck at me.
Luckily, it wasn’t a hot drink – it was probably iced tea or a cola. But it’s the idea that throwing things at runners is acceptable. Just so we are clear. It’s not.
If you have any inclination to throw things at runners, just don’t. I didn’t have time to react and turn around and flag them down – even though I should have.
Has anyone ever had this happen to them? What would you do if you had something thrown on you while you were running?

I had a hot dog thrown at me and it was as gross as it sounds. I recited the license plate for the remainder of my run but never did anything about it. It really burned me up though!
That is terrible. I don’t get some people. There wasn’t any time to get a plate. I just brushed it off – not gonna let people ruin my run or my day.
