Directions Please!

During a 4 mile run this week i got stopped by someone who was in a car and they then asked me for directions. Am i the only one who thinks that is a bit odd? i would never stop someone mid run to ask them anything. It was obvious what i was doing. Big bloke sweating moving in an uncomfortable fashion with a strain on his face, headphones on and head down.

Anyway i politely gave them the directions (honest ones. The thought did cross my mind) i put my GPS on pause while i was doing this. I then forgot to turn it back as i continued my run. They ruined my stats man and i’m a data nerd. I hope they never found the place and are still looking for it.

    It does seem a bit odd and (assuming it wasn’t somewhere deserted and you were the only person for miles) somewhat rude. You are … busy. That said, of all the people to ask, the runner probably has a far greater knowledge of the streets that some random bloke walking along staring at his iPhone.
