RUNNERS: THE EVERYDAY SUPERHEROES
I've also stumbled upon dog fight in progress. One angry owner pulled a knife on another owner's pit bull... there was lots of screaming. I used my water bottle to spray the more aggressive dog and tried to help before it escalated any further. (I felt like spraying the yelling owners as well, because they sure weren't helping the situation!) I offered to call police, and made sure everyone was moving on their way before I continued on.
Now, by no means do I believe I've done anything a normal person wouldn't do. But I think about all the other runners out there. Encountering the same kind of thing. Every day. We give directions, help people in need, and anything else we come across. All while smiling and waving to each other as we pass.
