I Saw Meb

I was running in Peñasquitos Canyon yesterday with a couple of friends from my relay team when this guy came running up the trail toward us going really fast. There are many excellent runners in San Diego, but i recognized this guy from about 10 meters away. It was Meb Keflezighi, who is probably best known as the Olympic Silver Medalist in the marathon at Athens. He also passed us going back the other direction several minutes later. I wanted to somehow acknowledge that i knew who he was and that i admire his accomplishments, but i couldn't think of anything that wasn't at least obnoxious. Maybe i'll start to carry a pen when i run just in case i need to request an autograph.
