    I don't know her but fantastic anyway image

  • great job that womanimage

    reminds me of a few local lads trying to mug and ex pro boxer  - took just a few punches -lol 

  • 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."

    Yes, a practical solution from "Dave in Liverpool". I'd be interested to hear his views on other issues of the day. Is there a role for him at the UN?
  • It IS, in its own twisted way, a fair point...
  • 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! image

  • Terrible journalism is tautologous in the case of the mail
  • Old fashioned values Peter..........The friend he had attacked was male..............she was a lady..............good boys never hit a lady
  • But he only lasted 5 or 6 minutes.  That's hardly an impressive run, even for an average runner.
  • They should make the mugger do the Bob Graham Round as his punishment; got to be worse than a prison sentence.
  • Hail Hail

    In the pic she's wearing Inov8 x-talon 212s.

    Shoe geek?  Moi?

    *Hat doffed*

    Now, about the heel-striking....

  • I did say it was twisted, Seren... I'm avidly against violence, except in the case of cyclists on pavements.
  • Without the aid of photographic evidence, I will identify the mugger's footware as Nike Air Max.

  • Great story - good on her - bet  he felt like a right tw*t!  image
  • 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 image

  • Ms White added: 'I just grabbed my running shoes and training top. It was the natural thing to do"

    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 !

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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!
  • Great link, fantastic story! image  love it!
