Did you read the first comment...? "What I don't understand is why the fella didn't just stop, turn around and hit her? He'd already assaulted someone else so it wasn't like he wasn't willing."
And terrible journalsim from the Mail.... they don't even say what make of trainers she was wearing.
*Hops over to Gear Forum to start "Best all terrain shoe to chase mugger?" thread*
Even more impressive is that she ran him down after just completing a Bob Graham round by the sounds of it!
In the pic she's wearing Inov8 x-talon 212s.
Shoe geek? Moi?

Now, about the heel-striking....
Without the aid of photographic evidence, I will identify the mugger's footware as Nike Air Max.
There was a similar story a couple of years ago - a woman in her sixties had her handbag stolen by a teenage girl.
She chased, and caught, the girl - she'd been quite a high-level sprinter in her younger years

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

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 !
I'm a Laydeee
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.

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

Discussed here too;
In the FRA thread 'Fetlock' is Natalie, & 'Timo Austino' is the Tim who was assaulted
