To the cabbie driving on the 5k road route: Honking your horn and driving fast while we’re running a 5k race won’t make us get out of your way. And we weren’t congratulating you on your driving skills by banging on your cab as you drove by, nearly running us over. We were telling you that we had the right-of-way at that time. Maybe you didn’t notice the 500 people running on both sides of the road, and maybe you didn’t see the many, many signs indicating that the road was a race route. Either way, karma will catch up to you.
