wet again. I was running and slowly gaining on a guy down the trail. He stopped to walk and I passed him, thinking nothing of it. 30 seconds later he's coming by me, barely faster than I am going but I maintain my pace and let him pass. He goes on ahead a bit and 30 seconds later his pace is slowing while I maintained my pace which causes me to catch up to him. As I go to pass, he speeds up which is annoying as hell since I need to get back to the side of the trail to avoid passing cyclists. Tired of his bullshit, I take off at tempo pace for a minute or two and he's gone.

The moral of the story is don't play games on the trails. If you are running the same pace as someone, ask if they want to run together or adjust your pace to give others some space. I could have said something but I was not in the mood. Maybe I should have been more friendly but damn

Yeah I hate it when people pass me and then immediately slow down.
