it’s just the common courtesy – the unspoken comraderie between hikers, walkers and runners. john’s mentioned it a few times – usually he gets ‘good morning’ s when he’s out on the seawall, and was excited when he initiated his first run-by greeting.
the other morning we were on the home stretch and someone ran by and said ‘good morning’ – it was my first downtown-vancouver-run-by-greeting experience. i was pretty excited (yeah, i’m easily amused) but it was enough to help me finish our route with warm fuzzies in my belly.
i have deviated from my set running schedule, basically alternating days, but hopefully i’ll be on track again soon — hopefully my work schedule will be back on track again soon. in the meantime, i’m going to think of something clever to say as a run-by. something nice, something witty, something unexpected but not rude — ooh this’ll be good.
