I’m commuting in to work, currently on the Dupont metro escalator. People run by me like it’s some race down the steps. Why? Why do you run down the metro escalator steps? Is work really that important? I don’t see you running down the street to the metro. Me personally – I’m a walker. I get bored and feel super lazy simply standing, so I figure a leisurely walk down the steps is a good compromise. I know some of my friends are runners, so I may offend some people with this post. But I just don’t get it – why do you run? To get the blood flowing? Didn’t have time for a morning workout? To catch the next train? The train comes every two minutes, so running just boggles my mind. Runners – care to explain?
