Generally, I'm very friendly when I see other runners in my neighborhood, a common occurrence. There are a lot of runners in my town and it's nice to acknowledge their efforts when we're pounding the pavement together. Sometimes I know them, sometimes they're familiar faces without names, or other times they're complete strangers. I don't usually repeat loops, so it is rare that I will see the same runner more than once on a particular run. Most runners return the wave, but sometimes there are those who are in "the Zone" and don't want to be interrupted by niceties. Seeing the same person twice is kind of fun. It's like, "Hey you! You're doing a long workout! Cool! Me too." Seeing him a third time is like, "Yup, we're still at it." A fourth time? "Is this the only street you know or what?!"
How do you handle the "run-by"? Are you a social moron like myself who sometimes feels awkward in these situations? Do you wave or do you ignore?
