Bicycle 1:31:10 [1] 20.6 mi (4:26 / mi) +168m 4:19 / mi

Bike ride out to Winchester and Lexington. Hit all the lights, biked with a commuter up MVP taking pulls which was nice (it was windy, all week would have been a tailwind after the marathon), then up the hills, around to the bike path, and on to the bike path. Now with the wind held down some faster times in to Arlington.

In to the Stroller Slalom, a woman was walking her small dog ahead of me on a retractable lease. I gave warning, went to pass, slowed down, and dog darted right in front of me. I slammed on the brakes and missed it by a couple of feet. I said something and she was incredulous that I'd almost run in front of me. I let her know that it would have been traumatic for me to have hit her dog, and she really should be more careful.

She told me I didn't own the bike path.

I tried to deescalate. I didn't say "that's right, it's a bike path, not let your dog run in front of people path" even though it was the truth. I said "please keep your dog under control so that someone doesn't hit it" and she gave me lip again and I biked away.

But seriously, if you know your dog is going to jump in front of anything that moves, maybe keep the leash shorter when you're on the bike path?
