Friday run

Went out after work for a run to kick off the weekend. The days are getting longer so was out in daylight. Changed my route today to an alternative one to keep it interesting. Was having a great run until an obnoxious person shouted out from their car and made me feel awful. Why can’t people just mind their own business and let us runners enjoy our running. I cut my run a bit short tonight as I was so angry. 😡 I’m not going to let it put me off though. I will continue to run. Maybe my early morning runs are better for me though. Have a great weekend everyone 😊

argggh. Happened to me last week. I was SO angry all day. Total sympathy. Some people can be utterly dreadful - feel rightly superior that you don't have to live in their tiny, pathetic minds, is the only thing I can recommend.

I’m so annoyed. There are some very small minded people out there who aren’t very kind. Hey ho at least we aren’t on the couch 😜

Oh TJ Mazz, don't dwell on it... remember it says more about them😠..

Keep up your running, you are amazing and an achiever that person is pitiable..

Forget it😊xx

Yes, you’re right. Thank you. It’s not worth worrying about but made me so annoyed at the time.

Hi TJMazz, I'm so sorry that happened but ignore them - it is utterly ignorant behaviour. You have discovered all the wonderful- ness of running, - don't waste time thinking about people who should have better manners - it's their problem, not yours. Enjoy your weekend xx 😄

Agree with everyone and I most certainly would not be changing my route/times to take account of other's ignorance! Who cares what they think? Don't give these types any oxygen as they simply thrive on it. :)
