“One of my favorite things to do on a glorious spring afternoon is put on my helmet, hop on my bike and ride for miles down beautiful country roads. I usually leave my cell phone at home, but when my daughter was nearing the end of her pregnancy, I started tucking it in my sports bra…just in case I got that exciting call.
“One day, as I was approaching a sharp bend in the road, the phone buzzed. I stopped on the shoulder to answer it but heard only static, and the number as all zeros. Seconds later, as I was about to start riding again, a truck barreled around the corner taking up both lanes. My heart leaped into my throat as I realized that had I not stopped, I would’ve been hit.
“A few weeks later, someone asked if I own a smartphone. My thoughts flashed to that mysterious call and I said, “I definitely do!’” – Annie Hannon, 43, Dayton
