He was doing it on the street.
Just when you thought that this is a free country for runners, someone like Alex Mesa comes along.
According to a report in the Miami Herald, the Florida resident received a ticket for running backwards.
The 44-year-old had been out on a 5-mile run when police arrived and cited him for “obstructing traffic.”
His fine: $77.50.
“People honk, wave, drive next to me and ask questions,” Mesa said. “They give me high-fives, scream my name and cheer me on.”
