    I think you should at least say something indicating you are behind and drafting – especially if the person is adjusting speed or glancing to the side at you. You wouldn’t run right up behind a stranger and keep pace with them while they ran right?

    Awesome pictures, that sandwich looks incredible and is making me hungry for something good tonight. 🙂 Have a terrific rest of your day!

      The sandwich was a gooood one!

      Agreed. Draft off me but ask first!

    I think it is rude.. the person who wants to draft should ask permission. Especially for a woman- we don’t know what that guy behind us is doing unless they tell us. It’s like when guys pull over to ask directions while running- always scares the crap out of me!

      Good point about running too! I hate when men approach me like that. I was on a walk and some guy asked directions and I was really uncomfortable.

    Excellent photos in today’s entry, Lisa! The bridge shots in particular really stood out as really striking.

      Thanks Chad! How are fitness things going with you and the Mrs?

        Going well! We are currently in more of a maintenance mode, trying to keep our respective weights stable. I’ve been working more on toning up rather than losing more pounds. Currently I’m obsessed with the rowing machine.

          Rowing is excellent! I used to use the rowing machine quite a bit when I took a break from running.
