Running Fraternity

April 22, 2008 by Richard Wright in Journal, Life

I have discovered that there is an unspoken camaraderie between runners pounding the streets and back alleys. Whenever we pass by one another, we each give a steely little nod, an unspoken acknowledgment that we are part of a brotherhood, sisterhood, or just plain hood.

At least, that’s what I assume they mean when they give their steely nods, and I also assume they interpret the same from mine. That mine is actually a silent plea for assistance, an unspoken “yes I will accept your medical assistance, thanks for asking”, has so far gone uncommented upon.

Rules of the road, and all that.

    Why, in the name of Dog, are you running around town?

    Ha – some insane idea about running a half marathon in a few months. No idea how that happened.
