Man recreating the Forrest Gump run and yes, he has Nikes and a Bubba Gump Shrimp hat!

Police officers meet interesting people all the time, but when one Oklahoma trooper stopped to chat with a man he met on the side of the road, he had no idea the story he was about to tell him.

“So there I am at work and I see an individual running down the interstate and pushing what appeared to be a baby carriage in 20 degree weather. When I was able to get to him it turned out to be an interesting contact. His name is Robla and is from England. He is recreating the run from Forrest Gump! He started in Oregon and was clean shaven and in two days he will hit 14,000 miles, and yes he had the Bubba Gump Shrimp hat and the Nike shoes.”

The amazing story was posted by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol who wished Robla good luck on his journey.

How cool is that? #runroblarun
