Almost "Run" Over

This morning I was out for a 5 mile run. I had left a little late so it was around 6 am when I was finishing up my last mile. It was still pretty dark as I was running down a hill back towards the neighborhood, but I could see another runner running towards me.

As this runner and I closed in on each other I noticed the running style from someone I have seen running around the area lately. This runner has a unique running style - he is always looking straight down at the ground.

I thought to myself, surely he will hear me coming and look up, but then we got a little close for comfort and he was running directly in the middle of the sidewalk. I finally spoke up and scared him. He jumped and we barely missed each other as we fumbled by each other. Interesting to say the least.

I am in the process of trying to get my groove back after a couple weeks of messed up schedules around vacation. Hopefully I will be back in the groove by the weekend.

My training has officially begun for the marathon - more to come soon!
