CHICAGO — An interview with a man from Littleton who was jogging in a Chicago rainstorm has gone viral.

WGN reporter Tahman Bradley caught up with Ethan Renoe on Sunday night as he was running shirtless along Lake Michigan.

The video has been viewed more than 1 million times and has garnered nearly 19,000 likes and more than 10,000 shares on Facebook.

Thousands of followers of WGN’s Facebook page commented on the video, remarking on Renoe’s looks and trying to get a date with him.

“It’s really been crazy,” Renoe said Monday. “I have about 900 friend requests (on Facebook) right now.”

Renoe said he was surprised about how quickly the video took off. When asked if he was “looking for love,” Renoe said: “I am.”

Renoe told WGN he is returning to Colorado on Monday.

Renoe published a book earlier this year called “Leaving Weather.”

A biography said “Ethan Renoe is a student. Not necessarily of any specific school or denomination, but of experience. He has lived on six out of the seven continents, had 19 part-time jobs, and done four consecutive one-armed pull-ups. He has not fallen in love, but he did fall in the pool twice while he was lifeguarding. Follow his journeys at”
