AAAGGGHHH… if they are feeling pain WTF are they running for? stop & fix the problem… if by pain, they mean the ache of USING muscles that really want to be sitting on the couch, get over it… wouldn't it be better to pay attention to that ache so if it got worse you'd know to stop?
I have to agree with this too.
If you want to run and wear headphones do it on a treadmill. They obviously don”t want to be aware of the surroundings so they might as well stay inside.
I know that may piss some people off. But it is truly a safety issue. As a women who runs at dawn sometimes. ( Not by choice, but darn I gotta work too!)
I sure want to be aware of my surroundings.
