2. John T. Snively, Weekend Runner and Insurance Adjuster

Library #02
John is a dedicated runner, doing a 5k at least twice a week and, every other week or so, a 10k. He sees it as a good antidote for the stress he feels at work and, as he hesitantly admits, time away from a wife who increasingly seems to disapprove of him. Until recently, his emphasis has been on speed, trying to go his set distance as fast as he can. Lately though, there’s been a change. He’s been stopping to talk to a fellow runner. They sit together on a bench in a park for five or ten minutes before taking off again. He’s just learned that she works in the same building as him. They have agreed to meet for lunch next week.
