Who said that?

If you aren't getting much response from fellow runners to your smile and heloo why not try the "skimpy running knickers" Vickie Probyn is asking about on another thread - you might be pleasantly surprised.
Ouch and a half. I saw a runner in GNR with a thong and thought it looked painful! Guess white van man might approve!
Didnt hurt that much Cinders.
Just have to remember to put it on the right way round next time.

In my area, everyone greets you while you are running! The tennis club out for their early morning run, people walking to work and cars!! Is great!
Me too, I live in a very rural area, and as such, there are always lots of people out walking, cycling and a handfull of runners, in the spring and summer, not so much in the winter.
I would say 95% of the people always say "morning", "hello", "I bet that keeps you fit!!" etc etc, or give a big smile and a wave.
As said before, it can give you a bit of a boost if you are waning.
Maybe its a geographical thing?
Live out in the country but work in London (city).At home I probably get a 90% acknowledgement rate from other runners, but along the Thames path/Embankment its probably about 10%. I've noticed that ipod runners (that old chestnut) almost exclusively are unresponsive. Or maybe its my skimpy running knickers...
Seems like a common theme here - it would seem runners in London are just unfriendly! Boo unfriendly London runners! Give us a wave!
