During the late morning I ran a comfortable four miles on the Jordan River Parkway. Today was a rest day, and I just poked along at a slow, restful 13 minute pace. There were a number of people out walking, cycling, and running, and it was nice to pass them with a wave of my hand and a nod of my head and a smile.
Runners really are a nice community of people. There are a few walkers that I see frequently, and I feel like I know them even though I've never spoken with them. We have something in common that we share by just being there day after day.
