So not strictly about PR, but I thought I would briefly share an observation about marathon training. In a few weeks time I will be attempting the Edinburgh Marathon and have been training in and around North London for the past few months and I’ve noticed something. I’ve noticed that runners don’t acknowledge each other. Not a nod, smile, or even a wink of encouragement. I guess that is just part of the way in London, like the silence on the tube, or the strange looks when you try and start a conversation with a stranger on the bus.
On marathon day everyone is supportive and encouraging. Why not during training and other runs?
Anyway, I just think it’s a shame.
