Running in public

This tribe serves the purpose of encouraging all of the beginner runners who haven't experienced this sort of activity and also to gather of all those who are 'experienced' in running in public.

Running in public is an amazing way to boost your self-esteem up and beat all of your 'people might see me' fears.
People say that the hardest part is actually getting out on the street. And frankly, through my public running experience, I confirm that it's absolutely true. So, just make sure you get out and start running, that's all that it takes.
Go out and run in public, no matter how weird you think you are, you won't regret!

Stevan P Running in public  Tribe

Contributorgold Stevan P Another special moment here!
Today, as I was approaching my turn back point, I've noticed a guy like 50 meters away, but didn't pay much attention as I was taking a care of a car passing by. As I had turned around and continued my run toward my home I heard someone running behind me and soon realized it was the guy I've seen a few moments ago. I was running with him for like 2 minutes and had a very pleasant conversation. This is the first time to see another runner on this route so it was really special :)

I must admit I occasionally get jealous that it's somewhat acceptable for guys. :(

I have found that on local training runs neighbours get to recognise me and often give an encouraging wave, smile, nod or comment. We do not know each other but they acknowledge my efforts.

As with Tamara, with running in events, after a few k's...

Along the way in a long run event we often run along the same runners through out the event. Sometimes passing them or vice versa; they pass us. At the end of my race, when we crossed the finish we were all congratulating each other; pats on the b...

Sometimes I am so focused on running and in the zone that I forget to acknowledge other runners/walkers. However, when I am on my bike I always try to encourage the runners who look like they are really putting in a big effort. 

Look at the a...

I often run my "long runs" on Saturday mornings (with my training partner) in an area known for its hills & windy conditions. It can range from  -20°C in the winter, 30°C in summer, high winds and rain - being that we are running literally around...
