One / 242 Lonely Runner

The Loneliness of the (Long Distance?) Runner

Just had to use that title from Alan Sillitoe’s 1959 short story….


  1. Must runners here seem to hunt in packs of two. 😊🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️

    Maybe he’s only going for a pint of milk?

  3. What a lovely road.

  4. This is a scene which is becoming increasingly scarce here in Singapore – although I am still able to find quiet streets to exercise on.
    Thank you for pointing towards Alan Stilltoe: I am having such fun googling him and the short story now.

  5. He’s running so we don’t have to.

  6. I’d like to live on a road like this . . is it always quiet though or is it usually a commuter rat run?

  7. Similar scenes here most days. They make me feel ‘unfit’. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  8. Great image … I think he is just want to feel his personal freedom.
