Strange Encounters While Running
I was running on campus just a few days ago in the pouring rain when some kid jumped out of a bus stop and yelled "WAIIIIIT!"
Normally, I would have just run by, but he had a determined look on his face. I slowed down and he continued, "How would YOU like... a free donut??"
His friend pops out of nowhere holding a box of dunkin donuts like it was a briefcase loaded with cash. I told him sure and he gave his friend the nod. He opens the box and tells me take one, any one. Even though I was nearing the end of a 7 mile run I sprung for a chocolate glazed, vanilla frosted, maple syrup donut with sprinkles. So I run the last mile back to my dorm in the pouring rain with my mp3 player in my left hand and this vile creation of a donut in my right. Must have been quite the site!
I wish things like this happened to me during runs.
