The writer of the letter proposes that university should pave running trails to increase their safety and also make them look nicer. Well, the man disagrees with the reasons and points made in the letter for some reasons. The man in the conversation thinks the proposal is a terrible idea. As for the thing about making trails safer, the man says the writer doesn’t think about the long-term consequences of running on a hard surface. It’s too hard on bones and joints and can lead to injuries. So it’s actually safer to run on the soft surface. About making trails look nicer, the man doesn’t think people will like it. He says the main reason why people enjoy the trails now is that people can take a break from buildings and streets to feel the nature. If the university pave the trails, the trails will look similar to buildings and streets. Then people won’t’ go there anymore.
