On October 13, 2012 I was on my normally daily run through my route in Adelanto, California. Prior to my run, I was doing brain training exercises on the web through a program called "Lumosity". So during my run I was putting in practice what I learned.
As I was running I was in the zone with great music and obviously putting my brain training to use. I then realized I had missed my normal turn off the street I normally go through to complete my six miles. Oh well, I thought to myself and kept running.
In the distance, I noticed a young black man sitting at the bus stop with an off-white jacket and a red strip on the sleeves. He was on his cell phone. He looked up at me from about 20 feet distance and then hung his head to look at either his shoes or the ground.
As I approached, I was looking around, paying attention to my soundings, and as I looked behind this young black man in the trees behind the bench of the bus stop, I saw this... I don't know what it was. It was about 5'8" and wearing a gray hoodie. Looking at me, it's face resembled a face of a very old woman, but yet no wrinkles. Its face color looked a bit gray and its eyes were big -- the sockets were larger than anything I've seen. And it's mouth was open a bit, larger mouth other than human. It was wide and looked at me as if it were amazed to see me.
I got freaked out and looked at the young black man and he seemed to be oblivious to who was behind him. I kept running as fast as I could. When I felt it was time to look back, I did and still just saw the black man sitting at the bus stop bench. I have no idea what this thing was. I can't make sense of it. I have never encountered anything like it.
