I was stopped and asked if I had a light once... err no I don't tend to have a smoke whilst out on a run (or when not on a run)
Yes the faster you get the less hassle you get.
I think seeing someone run fast sets off a primitve instinct in the viewer that say;
"this person is not to be stopped, but if you want you can help tackle the wholly mammoth and the sabre tooth tiger chasing him"

Lol to all the door-techniques! To be honest, I don't really mind it that much - they believe they have to do it, and if they can give me a book and go away thinking they are one step closer to heaven then I have something to prop up the table with and everyone's happy.
Maybe slower runners can adapt to this by mastering the look at the watch - "sorry, end of my recovery" technique, followed by a sprint as hard as you can around the next corner?
