Donnelly Circuit; 8:18 pace. COLD! Just -18C/0F, with a windchill of -27C/-17F. Boy, did THAT ever come fast. Full winter mode. The only thing that got cold was my face, as I didn't wear my tube or balaclava.
Hit a car today. Crazy drivers. I didn't think it would be possible to see drivers worse than Valley East, but Garson is very competitive in that department.
So, sun is up and it's bright and I'm wearing black against the white snow background, and I'm wearing an LED strobe light on my head. Hello! First stop sign controlled intersection where the man was turning right, and he actually looked right, saw me, and waited. Hurray!
Second one, the woman never saw me. Didn't bother to look right at all. But the traffic was thick and she couldn't pull out when I was crossing. So, made it across.
Third one, again she didn't look right. Same intersection as the other day when I had to jump out of the way. Different woman. I was trying to make eye contact with her, to no avail. I slowed down, anticipating her to gun it. I was right. I slapped the side of her car hard - that was the first time she saw me. Oblivious. If I had not slowed down, I'd not be running for a long while.
