I’m sure by now most of you have heard about Sally Meyerhoff. Olympic qualifying marathoner, age 27. She was out for a training ride. Reportedly she failed to yield at a two-way stop sign. She died instantly when her bike collided with a pickup truck.
I did not follow her career or read her blog, but in reading her posts now it is evident why she was beloved and admired. Many writers have shared their thoughts on Sally’s death — I’ve linked to a few below. I’m not a “take home message” writer, but today is different. Take home message today: the car will always win. Be safe. RIP Sally.
