Watch Where You're Going!

I usually don't do this, but something happened to me during my lunch time run today that I need to rant about.

I'm running south on the South St. running path towards the Staten Ferry Terminal enjoying the nice weather. A lot of people are out running, walking, taking pictures, etc.... Just past Wall St. I notice a guy who is paying more attention to his Blackberry than to the people around and approaching him. I kid you not, I almost ran this guy over. I really didn't care who this guy was, I yelled "watch where you're going!" Thank goodness we avoided a collision but something about this incident really pissed me off. Seriously people, you need to be aware of your surroundings. Take your eyes off of your Blackberrys, Ipods, & cell phones and look up otherwise something bad will happen.

It's amazing how many people just wander into traffic without taking their eyes off their blackberries and iphones. I hate to say it, but they deserve what they get.
