Went out for W7R3 tonight. Took the dog as usual and ran on the path around the running track (don't want to take the dog in in case he does his business on the track!). About 20 mins in, one of the runners within the group that were running on the track, ran the other way and as he passed said 'you're doing well, perhaps you should join us'. Cos I didn't hear the first part of what he said until after he said the second part (and I was listening to the crap W7 music on my itouch), I just made some incredulous noise and kept running! Doh!
I did feel a bit chuffed, cos he was proper running - you know, long-strided, strong and obviously well-experienced (in fact, I think he may have been my old next-door-neighbour who is a seasoned marathon runner, but I didn't have my glasses on and cos I was 20 mins in, I was a bit tunnel-vision, so can't be sure!).
I kind of felt like a 'real runner' to have another runner notice that I WAS running! Perhaps when I've graduated in 2 weeks, I'll look into introducing myself and joining the local running club. It might be nice to be part of a group rather than being a lone jogger. We'll see.
