aren't you used to ignorant people by now Jindalee
I always nod or try to say morning....usually comes out as more of a "mrrrfphng".
i run in the morning and usually get a good response from everyone i meet I
I always say a quick ,hi,hello or nod to all runners and anyone if i,m in the countryside, I am from North Staffs and when we had a new member from down south,he said how surprised he was that everyone spoke,said wasnt done down south (sure someo ne will put me srraight on that !!) Went Rhodes on my hols and it was 50/50 answering me
Where I used to live (Leamington), the runners were really friendly. Almost always got a hello, nod or smile from other runners. I'm now down on the outskirts of London and I think I've only ever seen a couple of people nod or smile.
I greet all runners, some are miserable and ignore me but most respond positively. Bristol and surrounding area are supposed to be quite friendly though.

I make eye contact and nod. If they respond, I'll assume that we are now firm running buddies, and accompany them for the rest of their run, step for step, matching every surge and slow-down, chatting the whole way round and periodically trying to get a sing-song going. Once the run is finished, I will let myself into their house, help myself to whatever's in the fridge, and then sleep with their wife/husband/eldery relative. If they don't respond I do the same thing.
I make eye contact and nod.
As it appears, judging by his club top, I live near Dachs, I've decided to give up running
i run canal tow paths mostly, canal people (dog walkers, runners but mostly those who live on narrow boats) are the friendliest people around i think.
