Running shoes, yes.  Training top?  Did she also wait for her garmin to find satellites before setting off?


Well I couldn't run after anyone without chest support!  The article did say she'd been wearing her PJs, so presumably no bra.

I prefer the one from wales the other year (it's on you tube), where 2 drunken louts abuse and try to steal a handbag from a rather 'ungainly woman'. Turns out that it was a stag night for a local cage fighting club who were all in drag. Boy, did they get a kicking !

A teenage girl and her mate threw some flour/sugar/similar in the faces of Mr Frog and myself when we were out on a run a while back. I was wearing sunglasses so nothing went in my eyes and I turned round, they saw I might chase and tried to run away. As I'm not a sprinter I took the "I'll keep going" approach to my pace but they only managed about 200 yards, if that, before stopping. I then explained the error of their ways.

Why on earth would you pick on people who are obviously runners unless you know you can leg it quite fast? Our club used to do a fancy dress Halloween run. One year, on this run, some yoof were chucking eggs about and looked at doing so in our direction until one of our number said "Look at our shoes, we're runners, you won't get away". They moved on.

Once had a couple of kids keep ringing the door bell every few minutes.. After about half an hour I stuck my running shoes on and chased them.... But not flat out, Must have spent 30 minutes following them round and round the estate til the both ran home, still we me following. Never happened again.

They should make the mugger do the Bob Graham Round as his punishment; got to be worse than a prison sentence.

I love the fact that the little pint-sized girl could induce the emotional fear of legal culpability, at the same time as the criminals suffered the physical pain of oxygen debt. Oh to see their faces as they began to realise that they couldn't get away from her even though they'd had a good head start.

It's a great David & Gloiath story!
