Almost got hit by a jogger today

I was headed up 12th Avenue today, and at the intersection with Sherman, a guy running in place and listening to an iPod waited for the fixie about 60 feet in front of me to pass, then looked the other way and started jogging across the street. I was sure he saw me barrelling up the hill at 11 mph, but then I realized he didn't, so I hit the brakes hard just as he was about to ram into my front wheel. It was instantly awkward for just a second as jogged in place right next to me, looking at my left shoulder and I was nearly stopped in the middle of the street. Disaster averted.
