Vail Daily letter: Run facing traffic

I wish the instructors at Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy would tell the students the proper side of road to run on when they are doing their afternoon jog down the road at Maloit Park. My understanding is that you run facing traffic (left side), not the same side that traffic is going. When coming home from work the students are on the same side of road I am driving on and aren’t even aware of the fact that there are cars behind them and are running almost in the middle of the road. Maloit Park Road is a road (we have stop signs and everything!). So please instruct the runners the proper side of road to run on so no one gets hit from behind while running and not paying attention to traffic.
