I’m a runner.
Proud to be a runner.
Glad to be a cheery runner, who says “hello” and “morning” to other runners, walkers, cyclists and the world in general.
I’ve probably moaned once or twice where I’ve “morning”ed a cyclist and they’ve not responded. Miserable buggers.
Now I’m commuting by bike I do the same, “hello” or “afternoon” to all and sundry. Other cyclists are pretty good, a nod of the head from the other side of the road is international cycle-sign for “get us, what are we like”.
Except the runners. Runners don’t respond to me on a bike.
They do when I’m running but not when I’m cycling, and vis-versa with the runners.
It’s like Romeo and Juliet, two clans that will never meet.
Except I’ll keep saying hello to both of you.
