Runners not getting it, or getting it!

For the last many months, I've been walking the seawall around Stanley Park. I've noticed people with dogs, strollers and masks taking care of each other. NOT the runners. They approach from behind or even more disgustingly, right at you, some spitting, most panting and breathing heavily. I've taken to extending my umbrella or a vitamin water out with my left arm, to remind them, they are selfish and in my space. I'm actually enjoying their reactions as they realize what they have done as they run right into it.

This has been going on before the pandemic. The one that really get me is when the come up behind you and so so so close to you the basically brush your sleeve. Its very startling, and when there is no one else around totally unnecessary! Why can't they just move the F over? I'm so embarrassed for them!

It's good to remain optimistic and listen to modeling data/dr bonnie henry... not confessions.

I don't run there anymore...

It's hard to avoid pedestrians... Everything is in motion guys... Be aware of your surroundings...

In Japan people walk like they are cars. Imagine suggesting that here.

The sea wall is not for running!

Runners should be forced to run at walking speed. And not increase their cardio to the point where they are breathing heavily.

Where else would you expect them to approach than from behind?

This pisses me off so much.They are so self entitled,inconsiderate and selfish.Yes,some do run on roads and move,but the majority of them seem to think the distancing rules don't apply to them.I can't wait for them to return to the gyms
