We all have some pet peeves, but do you have some that haunts you while running? I have two that really irritate me.
One: Small stones that get stuck in the soles of my shoes.
Our streets here in Johannesburg have millions and millions of these little buggers.
They have the nasty habit of getting stuck in the soles of my Nike Pegasus running shoes. Unfortunately these shoes have a perfect place for them to get stuck in.
The tick, tick, tick, tick, tick…of the stone hitting the road while running drives me insane!
I hate smokers! They are the most selfish creatures that walk our planet. I know this is more of a general pet peeve, but while running it drives me crazy even more! I don’t want to smell someone’s cigarette smoke while running. It is awful and really irritates me.
On early fresh air morning runs this pet peeve is even worse. I can tell you in which homes smokers live and when a car drives by with a smoker inside I get very irritated. I smell that smoke for the next kilometer or more. I can still handle the exhaust fumes from the cars, but cigarette smoke never!
That’s my two main pet peeves while running. What’s yours?
Happy training everyone!
