How to use "Run counter to" in context?

Counter to what? That's the question I was asking myself the other day as I ran down the street. I've always been a runner, ever since I was a little girl and my mom would take me for long runs around our neighborhood. But as I got older, I started to run for fun, not just for exercise. I'd head out on downtown runs, or out to the country to explore new trails. I never really considered running the other way - running against the flow of traffic. It seemed foolish, like it wouldn't be very efficient. But last week, I did it.
