Who’s the hot guy that crashed the Pride Run?

Add this share

The 15-minute lull between hundreds of gay jocks starting the Pride run and their return to Piedmont Park is pretty quiet. Even a little dull. Until a hot guy crashes the finish line.

Sure, there were plenty of hotties among the more than 300 participants in Saturday's 23rd Annual Atlanta Pride 5K Run & Walk (view photos). Shirtless ones. Some with tanks. Some with tats. Even bootylicious ones.

But they were gone, even if only temporarily, until Cory Baumann brought his alterna-queer cuteness across the finish line in 15 minutes and 31 seconds. So photographers milled about, chatting with a drag queen, a chiropractor and race organizers from Front Runners Atlanta.

Until this guy.

He quietly snuck up about after everyone sprinted away.


Then he cleared the balloons and hey there, happy trails!


Work that smile. And shirtlessness.


Tease us by casually wiping the sweat from your toned torso.


Throw us an over the shoulder look. Hey!


Yes, we're still checking you out.


Just add this guy to the long list of reasons why we love summer in Piedmont Park. Ah yes, summer hunks. Gay dog piles, too. And gay runners in Speedos talking with cops.
