So if you saw an awkward figure staggering around Kingston this morning, it wasn't Harley Bennell enjoying the off season. It was me testing out my knee in one of my first attempted walks since my injury in July. While the success of the walk itself was questionable, I noticed something else uplifting.
Everyone I saw walking or running in the opposite direction gave a friendly smile in response to mine. It could be argued they were just happy to be walking the other way to me, but I choose to go with the more likely possibility that people are generally nice to each other when they have the chance- even to people they don't know.
Thank you Kingston.
