If you've been sidelined from running due to injury, we have your guide to getting back in the game. Ease into it by following these rules.
Etiquette expert and runner Lizzie Post knows a thing or two about the rules of the road!
What is the best way to cheer up a running buddy who is injured? Is it rude to talk about running?
There’s no rule for this one. You’ve got to gauge your friend’s mood and know that it might change with each interaction. Sometimes hearing about what you’re missing out on is exactly what you need to get you through physical therapy—or a tough day. Other times, it makes you frustrated about your current situation and jealous. If you don’t know, ask. “Are you up for a running story today? If not, I totally understand.”
