A LONELY ROAD

Runner's World (UK) - - HUMAN RACE -

I’m train­ing for a marathon and am do­ing a lot of the runs alone for lo­gis­ti­cal rea­sons. On my last long run I must have passed 40 run­ners. Each time, I made the ef­fort to look up, say hello and smile – hop­ing this would en­cour­age them and mo­ti­vate me, too. Not one per­son smiled back or even ac­knowl­edged me. Are run­ners be­com­ing mis­er­able? Ania Gabb, Bea­cons­field, Bucks

Ania Gabb has a smile for ev­ery­one and thinks it should work both ways.
