Cemetery Etiquette - Jogging?

Sometimes, when out for a run, I jog along the paved roadways of a cemetery.  I've been wondering about the etiquette of this.

Usually, I have at least one close relative buried there, and I do stop by the grave briefly.  But a few times I have been in some cemetery where I don't "know" anybody.

So far - I've heard no complaints.  I'm careful to never venture near a burial service.  I don't run on grass.  I yield the right of way.  You don't want to intrude on grief.

Most of the time these place are empty.
The names of the ghosts flash by as I jog -
hopelessly far, but whispering close.
