JANUARY 2018 (APPROXIMATE)

In the winter of 2018-2019 I ran down 15th about 4 mornings per week around 5 to 5:30 a.m. every morning I would encounter a tall “person” resembling Baron Samedi (of [Vodou] mythology). Sometimes I would run past him and he would be striding down the sidewalk with his coat blowing behind him. Other times he would be hidden and scare me deeply. For example I once ran up upon him (and he was so thin) hidden behind a telephone pole smoking a cigarette. We were inches apart. I never saw his face or eyes. He was there every day. He felt malevolent. I couldn’t tell you age race etc. I believed male. It freaked me out to the point that I started running in the street and finally changed my route completely.
