Two months ago I asked runners on Twitter:
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen while out running?
The answers were hilarious, troubling, and…well…weird. You can see each reply here (warning: NSFW).
Even better than the replies I got on Twitter were the comments on the article! My favorite:
“A guy wrapped up in tin foil walking down the street pretending he was in a zero gravity environment.”
I can’t make this stuff up.
The experiment was so interesting I decided to do it again, this time asking: What’s the funniest thing someone has ever said to you while you were out running?
The replies came in and I still can’t stop laughing.
Situations like these remind me that running is truly one of the best ways to experience the world. Enjoy!

@JasonFitz1 I find it funny that with less than a week until my 1st 26.2 people are asking me if I realize how far that is. Duh, of course.

@JasonFitz1 (out in 11* F): you’re crazy. You’re hot but you’re crazy. Does your boyfriend ever tell you that? (Yes, he does)

@JasonFitz1 “I’ll kick your f***ing ass!” right after she almost ran my wife and I over while ignoring our right of way

@JasonFitz1 Just today – “You’re an exotic tropical fruit.” Not sure what tropical locale is populated by pale blondes.

@JasonFitz1 No words were exchanged, but a 9 year old once slapped my spandexed ass when running in downtown New London.
