Running on the other hand has brought some slightly more endearing comments and interactions. As one occurred yesterday while on my latest stress busting run in Stevenage, I thought it was worth recording a few:
"Get those knees up, son" said a younger, heavier man in a cheery way
"We wish we could run like you" said an elderly couple with their walking sticks
"Wow you're brave - shorts in the winter - are you a postman?" asked someone in my neighbourhood
"You're doin' well, keep it up" said an encouraging man as I gasped up a steep hill
And my favourite -
"Nice arse" said a couple of middle aged women, walking their dogs on Dunstable Downs last year as I sped passed them.
