Running is not necessarily a pursuit that can be associated with pleasant scents, but you know you’ve got a runner on your hands when they get a new pair of sneakers and before they put them on for that first run they slowly open the lid, bend over, inhale deeply, hold it, sit up, and then slowly exhale with their eyes closed.
No no, don’t disturb them, don’t say anything, don’t ask any questions until they’re done and even then give them a few seconds.
They’re enjoying the new shoe smell. Nothing sweeter in this world than that smell.
