I know that people run, I know that some people (for reasons that I can't fathom) even like to run. But what I really can't understand is why people insist on running on the road, when there is a perfectly safe bike path and sidewalks along the road to run on. I mean really, there's this one guy in particular who runs, and I'm using that term loosely, down major roads. Busy, major roads, with lots of traffic. And he doesn't run so much as do a spot on imitation of Burt (of Sesame Street fame) doing the . . . pigeon.

It doesn't seem safe, or smart. And really, if you run you probably do it for your health so I'd think you'd be concerned with getting hit by a car. I'm just saying...


  1. Well, if your sidewalks are uneven, or you have to stop every stinking block because of traffic, pedestrians, dogs, etc...running in the road is one option to spend more time running and less time jogging in place.

  2. well the bike path (where I usually see Burt) is once nice solid paved path no cracks!
