So happy Robert Sullivan wrote the article in this month's RW. Brought up on an island where everyone greeted each other every day and having lived in a number of small towns in three countries where the same recognition is a way of life I have been puzzled when out running by the number of non wavers I continued to come across. Living in anonymous towns and cities I came to accept it as part of normal culture there and was always surprised and delighted to meet a fellow waver. 10 years back in the sticks the opposite was true, that I was disappointed, especially on longer, remote runs, rainy or cold days, or when passing the same people regularly that waves were not reciprocal. I now accept and have had it "Validated" by the article. We are either wavers or non wavers, it's as simple as that. Do you agree?
