Long-distance runner defeats burglar

A burglar trying to steal a bicycle in West Seattle last week was chased down by a marathon-running mom. Sarah Tatterson, an accomplished long-distance runner, pursued the man after seeing him take her husband’s bike from the garage. She yelled at neighbors to call the police and gave chase. When the suspect demanded that she “back off,” Tatterson said, “My response was, I was going to run six miles today, but I could probably do 12.” The cops caught the suspect 10 blocks from Tatterson’s house.
