According a Twitter account, the man’s name appears to be Brendan Cox, and he’s running with a shirt that says, “#RunnerNeedsAJob” on the back. A tweet from Cox says that he is currently a sophomore at University of Maryland studying marketing. (How appropriate.)

No tweets under the hashtag point to any employment offers just yet, but the guy’s clearly got creativity, determination, and a can-do attitude.
