Wow, I'm sorry you rolled your ankle. But, did you ever consider that you
could ASK for help if you needed it? Most of us are not mind readers. I'm
not sure that you realize that a majority of the individuals out running
and cycling right now are training for Ironman and are not likely to stop
their long workouts for anything short of a specific request for assistance
or an obvious medical emergency. We aren't cruel or indifferent, but as
distance athletes we have a code that we leave each 'to his own' unless we
are asked; buck-up or speak-up but for God's sake don't bitch about it.
