Based loosely on a book by Mark Remy called The Runner's Rule Book as well as a Runner's World article from the January 2010 issue over the next week or so I will be posting a few running rules to live by.
I hope you enjoy the series.
Rule Six: For Pete's Sake, Stand Still at Red Lights
Sharks dies when they stop moving. Runners do not. Keep this in mind next time you encounter a Don't Walk sign at a busy intersection. There's no need to jog in place or dance from foot to foot like you have to pee. Just chill. Wait a few moments. Note: If a nonrunner waiting with you at the crosswalk is dancing from foot to foot, he or she may indeed have to pee. Give this person wide berth.
