This is Cole Murphy-Hockett, a 27-year-oldBrooklyn-based medical student who recently ran the Brooklyn Half Marathon despite getting a nosebleed about two miles in.
I thought it was a runny nose, but then I wiped it on my sleeve and saw that it was bloody and was like, shit, this is not an opportune time for this! Murphy-Hockett said.
But he wasn’t about to quit, in part becausehe wasrunning to raise money for the Brooklyn Free Clinic, where he volunteers with his classmates.
So he popped over tothe medical tent, rolled some gauze into a nose plug, and just kept running.
It kind of sucked not being able to breathe out of my nose, but it was fine, he said. I finished the race and got the best time Ive ever gotten.
Speaking of time, it was only a matter of time before the photo showed up on Reddit, where people quickly launched an epic Photoshop battle.
He joined the ranks of memes from the past.
And prepared himself for battle.
They can smell blood, you know.
