Here are the revelatory Tweets from Canabalt-loving Chris Phipps:

I yelled “I’m a marathon runner, I will catch you…eventually” 3:46 PM Nov 25th from Echofon
Woman got her iphone back, called 911 & SFPD were here within 3 minutes. 3:48 PM Nov 25th from Echofon
@jeffremer I don’t know about heroic. The thief was a 16yo girl. Had it been a 200 pound guy, I don’t know what I’d do if I caught him 4:01 PM Nov 25th from Echofon
@munialerts N Judah @ Noe & Duboce. Around 3:40 PM4:16 PM Nov 25th from Echofon in reply to munialerts
