Well, the running world got even smaller for me at the Xterra race this weekend. I met someone afterwards who looked really familiar. Turns out he is Yo Momma's Twitter friend from Birmingham and writes a new trail running column for our local track club newsletter, which I read cover to cover cause I love me some local race news. So I figured that definitely must be why he looked familiar.
Then I got the news of why he really looked familiar.
Remember Team Random Strangers from the Country Music Marathon? Recap: Team Random Strangers consisted of me and the random stranger who pep talked me down the finish chute. It would most likely have been a much grumpier, heat stroke-ier finish without my finish line teammate.
Team Random Strangers from the Country Music Marathon is now reunited.
The moral of the story is that no matter how far you are from home you should always be nice to your fellow runners because they might end up being your neighbor. And if you weren't nice, that could be awkward.
