OK fellow bloggers, I have a question. I have recently decided to really give my heart and soul back to this Couch to 5k thing. I started to do this on our awesome mile and a half PT course here at beautiful (lol) 29 Palms. The course is about the size of a sidewalk for you city folk, maybe a bit wider. It goes out for a mile and a half and you have to go back a mile and half to get back to your car so if you go out..your coming back. Something I should have kept in mind when in the summer in about 90 degrees I decided to walk it against hubs better judgement and just about had heat stroke and thought I was going to die. So you run/walk, c25k whatever you want to do, so depending on time of day, you could potentially be out there while others are at various points coming and going. I never go during morning PT time, remember this base is the majority infantry Marines and they PT hard, morning afternoon and night so best to stick between 9-11 am and that is what I do but still there are some people out there. Here is my question. What is the proper thing to do when you are face to face passing another runner? You are coming one way, they are coming the other..and then you either do a little wave, some say a little hello, and some just ignore you like your not there?? I am confused, I don't want to be rude, sometimes I am on my way back and all I can do is muster a little wave but still feel like you should at least acknowledge this other person, right? I mean maybe it's just me. I have been greeted by Marines, other woman, so it's not a black or white issue..like Marines ignore, woman say hello. So I ask you my fellow blogger runners...is there a hard and fast rule? LOL just something light for the weekend.
