Sixth of a Series: Running Rules to Live By - For Pete's Sake, Stand Still at Red Lights

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.

How about stretching (I do)? Pull-ups(I do too)? Push-ups(not yet) Finding some footholds so you can Usain Bolt your self across the intersection?

BTW we NEED that sign on football game day. I almost hit about 4 different groups yesterday.
