An apology to a runner

I have two colleagues who run regularly along city sidewalks.

I have two colleagues who run regularly along city sidewalks.

They often express their anger and frustration at motorists who look for cars when entering a roadway, but not for pedestrians.

Both have had close calls.

Yesterday, I was that motorist.

To the woman who was running along Old Clayburn and crossing Christina on Monday evening, I am deeply sorry for the scare I put into you.

You had every right to yell at me.

When making a right turn onto another roadway, it is easy to fall into the habit of looking to the left for cars and not paying attention to pedestrians coming from the right.

I learned my lesson.

I just hope it sticks.
