I read this in a story called A Darker Shade of magic by V.E. Schwab. You can read an extract https://www.tor.com/2015/01/21/a-darker-shade-of-magic-excerpt-v-e-schwab/
A marble counter ran against the wall, and on it a basin of water waited for him, as it always did. He rinsed his bloody hand, as well as the silver crown he’d used for passage, then slipped the cord it hung on over his head, and tucked the coin back beneath his collar. In the hall beyond, he could hear the shuffle of feet, the low murmur of servants and guards.
Whats the meaning of "run against the wall" in this?
