“Dear PoPville,

During my typical night run in D.C. on Tuesday night (Oct. 20) I noticed you were running on the other side of the street at the same pace.

I thought nothing of it as there were lots of runners out around us but you seemed to continue the same random path I was going (15th St to 18th and down to New Hampshire and back towards 14th). It seemed like you were trying to pace me because I would stop for a quick break, and then you would stop for a little once you got ahead and we kept this up consistently until we got to 14th St. where we lost each other.

You were wearing all black and I was the guy running shirtless (because it was nice out). Not sure if this was coincidental but it seemed like you were trying to pace me. I’ll admit, I ran longer than I would with shin splints because I wanted to keep up with you!

If you’re interested I’d love to meet up over a coffee or even a walk/run.”
