Who says that sweat isn't sexy? The following is a flyer posted in my friend's neighborhood. She and I ran the NYRR Anniversary Run together, and it seems as though a gentleman on the subway became enamored of her during her trip back home.

"Do you run on Wednesday Mornings?

I kind of feel creepy doing this, but I saw you on Wednesday morning June 4th around 7:15am on the 7 train and we both got off the 52nd St. stop. I'm guessing after one of your runs...maybe in Astoria Park. It was a rainy day and you looked amazing in a pair of brown running pants and a white hoodie. I thought I might never see you again so I decided to be one of those desperate guys that puts up a flyer. If you see this and remember a guy in an orange shirt and black track pants and you want to get to know each other and maybe go for a run together email me. Oh other thing I remember is that you wore the biggest watch I ever saw, probably a heart monitor. Hope to hear from the real you."

email address omitted to save the poor guy some spam mail

Ya gotta give the guy some credit for trying.


  1. No, but her husband sent him an email ;)

  2. ugh! that is the one of the creepiest things i've ever read!

  3. OMG, that's great! And creepy. And awesome. Is that combination possible? :-)

  4. I guess this is what you do when you don't have any luck "trolling for hooch" on craigslist.


What's on your mind?
