AND.....I guarantee that every single person who complains about it, has at least once (likely a few times) done the same exact thing: been passed and picked up the pace to keep near, saw someone in the distance and picked up the pace to haul them in, tried to hang with a faster runner who went by them, in other words: "raced" someone on their workout. Everyone has done it at sometime, so people, please don't be hypocrites, despite one's rationalizations on why "when *I* did it, it was 'different'," i.e., acceptable behavior. )[/quote]
Well you're wrong. I've never done this, not even once.
