I'm writing a student article about what running means to people. I think it's seen as an odd thing to do by people who don't run, because people can't see any aim, objective, goal etc. Recreational footballers or cricketers don't get heckled, neither do tennis players or golfers, but we do! Why? Perhaps because we look like loners? Maybe it's the kit some of us wear? Do you agree that running is seen as an odd pastime by the general public, and if so why?
Can you try to describe how you feel about running? How do you feel when running - what does it do for you? How would you convince those who ridicule and heckle that there's more to running than meets the eye?
Any interesting heckling stories (apart from 'Run, Forrest, run! We've all had that one...) or views from friends or family members who just don't see the point in running; have you managed to change their mind?
