Monday Moanin'

Why does that 48 hours go so fast?

I get to run indoors on the dreadmill because I have new shoes to test drive......

Is it universal for runners to give the hand wave or head nod when encountering another runner going the opposite direction?

How much out of the way will you go to speak to another runner?

I've had some runners, typically male just run by and not even acknowledge my existence!

Sandy survived the torturous weather of Orlando for the Disney marathon weekend. I think it got to 65º one of the days!

The Packers are moving on in the playoffs....

There are times when I'm so hurting, so lost in my own misery, that my reaction time for the head nod is way too late. I usually try to grunt out some acknowledgement though. But never to the evil cyclists.

Yes, I've even done that, but it's only when I'm either in a zone or feel like CRAPPOLA!!!

I try to always acknowledge other runners, but like Still Running said, sometimes I'm too far off in my own little world and my reaction time is too slow and I miss the moment. But I try!

What a change from last year's Disney Marathon! Congrats to Sandy!

I always do the nod, wave and/or good morning but I've gotten the shaft a few times.

Sorry I ignored you today when I ran by. I was mad b/c googled Raynauds and I told you not to.

I always at least nod and smile, and if people seem friendly I'll give them a "good morning" or something. But I've had many other runners who've gone right by me without a single nod.

Since there are only about 6 other runners in my town, I get ridiculously excited and wave-y when I see one of them. Usually, no one is that excited to see me.

I always do the acknowledging wave. sometimes accompanied by a 'good morning' or 'good afternoon' but usually silent.

I rarely encounter runners who don't at least give a quick wave...so when I do, I want to cry (ok, that's a little dramatic). But, it is nice to read in the other comments that chances are, it was unintentional. Whew!

I do the hand wave most of the time. Most people acknowledge me, but I hate when someone doesn't wave back. Makes me feel like a doofus.
