While many Washington, D.C., residents were staying home, stocking up and watching the news, one brave man decided he needed to lighten the mood around the city and the country.

Either that, or this is an extreme example of how some people just hate to miss a workout.

So this man, believed to be Jimmy Kruyne, stripped down to nothing but running shoes, a bathing suit and a mask fashioned after a horse's head. He was caught jogging through the street's of D.C.'s Bloomingdale neighborhood by NBC4 news cameras.

After being caught on camera, Kruyne posted this photo of himself on his Twitter page. Earlier in the day, he had sent out this tweet:

Kruyne told DCist that he wasn't clamoring for attention, rather he wanted to give people a reason to laugh during these uncertain times.

"Little spontaneous jogging hopefully put a smile on people's face before this awful storm," he said.

And you might as well get in a run while you still can.
