Don't Ask Joggers for Directions

Yesterday I was out for a run and trying to think of what to write about next, when out of nowhere it fell right in my lap.  A car slowed down coming towards me, and a guy leaned out the window and tried to ask me for directions.  This has happened to me before, but not since I started this blog.  Anyway, I did the same thing yesterday that I have done in the past, I just sort of shrugged and kept on running.  I mean seriously, what do you expect?  One, I have headphones in my ears and I can't hear you.  And two, do you really think it's reasonable to expect me to stop running in order to talk to you?  I'm jogging for a reason, and  if I stop to chat my run is over.  Would you ask somebody swimming laps at the gym to get out of the pool and show you where the locker room is?

When you google "jogger with headphones" a surprisingly small number of relevant images pop up.  These were the only two that were even remotely close to what I was looking for.
