Now that summer is upon us, as it were, the streets are positively packed with joggers. This is a fetish I have never understood: why would grown adults run about in public, for pleasure?
As far as I can think on the matter, there are only two good reasons why I would ever run in public, neither of them pleasurable:
1. If there was something scary behind me and I wanted to get away from it:
2. If there was something in front of me that I wanted to get to quickly:
And apart from these I cannot think of any reason to run in public.
