For a week now, there has been some hype about a picture taken of a runner during the 2012 Cooper River Bridge run. I mean, who can blame them?! He is really cute, and while he is working up a sweat!
I saw this same picture on the local news the other morning, acknowledged that he was cute, but didn't think too much about it. While getting ready in the locker room at work that same morning, a co-worker asked if I had seen the picture. She ran the bridge run this year as well, and had done some research to see what the hype was all about. He lives in New York currently, but is from Charleston and she actually went to elementary school with him. She also heard that he was going to be on Good Morning America for an interview. Talk about quick fame...and for just running a bridge along with 40,000 other people!
Fast forward to this morning, my husband texts me to ask if I had heard about the really photogenic guy. I tell him yes and ask why. He then tells me his name, Watkins Little, and asks if it rang any bells. His name is not very common, so it sounded familiar as soon as I read the text. It must be a small world, because he went to Lander University the same time I did!
