For decades I've been running the same trails by the Krav
Academy w/relatively no incidents, so I figured yesterday would be like every
About two and a half miles in to my run...
I Noticed 4 Guys Walking...
They were young, I'd say high school...
I could tell the leader, he was the one out in front of the
other two smoking a cigarette.
Big kid, a bit taller than me and filling his white t-shirt
