In my long history with this sport, I've never seen it, from sprints to marathon.
I was the "new kid", a skinny introverted high school sophomore. I had moved from the north to the south and had a northern accent to my voice.
On the track team there was the a rich kid who drove the expensive car (Daddy's BMW) and dated the hottest girl in the school. He was the star 800M guy and I was a miler.
On an easy training run 6-8 high school kids....talking and joking. I was normally quiet but made a comment that for some reason offended him. He stopped the run...I stopped...he got in my face and was yelling at me. I stood there not sure what to do and he did a hay-maker style punch and clocked me solidly on the side of my face/jaw.
I was stunned and totally surprised. He was still in my face yelling at me. He didnt think I would do anything but I punched him right in the mouth. Hard. He had braces so the punch did more damage and his mouth was full of blood. He was shocked.....screaming "you little fuker" over and over and spitting blood on the road.
He never said a word to me after that.....kept a wide berth from me in the hallways etc. It was a small high school and the incident gained me a level of respect from others.
^^Is this the story of the time Jamin beat up HardLoper?^^
