Silent Runner...

By Frank
Lately, the group run has seen a slight increase of runners. Some were new runners while the others are regular runners whom I have not ran with them before. This is certainly good news for running with others does make the sport more interesting.
For those who had ran with me for years, they will certainly know 1 thing about me, I don't talk nor chat while I ran. Reason is kind of obvious. I can't start a conversation due to lack of breath. I will tire easily once I start uttering words from my mouth. For those who not know of this, you may find me rude by not replying. Well, it's not that I didn't want to, it's just that I can't. Sometimes I will try, but not always. I apologies for this if you find me rude.
Some may also find me not replying back when I'm tired. I don't immediately reply back after completing a run as I'm still catching my breath. And just the past weekend, I was tired due to lack of rest. I was pretty stone and was slow in replying others and may even not notice a conversation.
However, during my runs, I will try my best possible to greet other runners by just simply waving to them. It's a running etiquette that I find easy to oblige.
So whether you are running with me or running past me, just remember that I'm simply a silent runner or pehaps one that is just simply out of breath.
