This week’s question is a reader request:

“I live on the NE/NW border and am looking for some new running routes. The Glenwood cemetery is a large area of land that is open during daylight hours, but their website is not clear about a running and jogging policy. I have known of some cemeteries that permit this, given that you do not interfere with any ongoing funerals or processions.

What do people think about running in a cemetery? It is generally okay or is it disrespectful?”

While we once spoke about dog walking in a cemetery – do you think it’s ok to run in one?
