Okay, so yesterday I was running through the National Mall, and I was about 16 into a 20 miler.
I am about to head back to Rock Creek Pkwy to run back towards Chevy Chase, and I get stopped at a traffic light.
Out of nowhere, a group of like 8 teenagers get out of a Chevy Tahoe, walk over to me with a small camera and start to ask me a question about the Marine Corps Marathon (I am not running it). They asked if I was training for it.
Before I could say no, one of them punched me right in the face, and they all ran away and drove off.
I was stunned, and didn't really go after any of them.
No one else seemed to notice.
I finished my run and called the cops. they took a report and told me it was a problem they have been having called "Happy Slapping". They said I should look out for it on YouTube and report it if I see it.
