I'm still far from a touchy-feely kind of guy, but I try to be more open to the emotional aspects of things now.
In any case, while running tonight, a cyclist was riding towards me, and while she passed yelled "Oh my god, I love your dedication!" (We'll ignore the fact that my running is sporadic at best, and I actually prefer running at night.)
Definitely put a little smile on my face and gave me a bit of a boost while running to have that random stranger cheer me on. Thanks!
