"Hey, I saw you running this morning!"
Am I the only one who cringes when she hears this? I've never been a fan of spectators that I personally know. Sure, Joe-I-don't-know can watch me run my entire route. But my husband? My family? My friends? People I know on a casual basis? I don't like it. I'm not comfortable with people I know watching me run. I worry about what I look like at the exact moment I'm spotted. Is my form good? Am I running a decent pace? Am I smiling? Or worse, am I talking to myself? Or even more worse, did they happen to catch me take my .05 mile "walk break" and totally miss my flying 8:20 mile??
