An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper will never forget an interaction he had Saturday morning.

Trooper Christopher Reeves saw a man running along a highway pushing what looked to be a baby carriage on a day when the temperatures were in the 20s and the wind chill was in the single digits.

“When I was able to get to him, it turned out to be an interesting contact,” Reeves told OHP officials, who posted the interaction on Facebook. “His name is Robla and (he) is from England. He is recreating the run from ‘Forrest Gump!’”

Robla told Reeves that he started the journey in Oregon and, in two days, he will hit 14,000 miles. The runner was clean shaven when he started his trek.

“Yes, he had the Bubba Gump Shrimp hat and the Nike shoes,” Reeves said.

Highway Patrol officials did not say where the interaction between Reeves and Robla took place. But, on a Facebook page dedicated to Robla’s run, he posted Friday night that he was on the road to Prague, Oklahoma.

According to a website connected with Robla’s Facebook page, he already has run across America four times and is working on the fifth leg of his run. The website says he became the first person to ever run across the U.S. three times in a year.
