Running away from a T.Rex at Jurassic Park.

From the Internet that brought you the viral hit McKayla Is Not Impressed, comes a new Olympic-themed meme: Mo Farah Running Away From Things.

Farah is the British distance runner who won the 5,000 and 10,000 meter races in London. He became the first runner to win the 10,000-meter gold for Great Britain, and his unbridled passion and joy upon winning both races captured the hearts of Olympics fans around the world.

But that soulful exuberance also fits well in a different setting: running away from things. A violence-crazed Tony Montana, for example. Or a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Or zombies. Photoshopped images of Farah running for dear life are collected on the Mo Farah Running Away From Things Tumblr page. Check out the gallery below for a rundown.

The Tumblr is still in its infancy, with just a handful of posts so far since the first one went up Saturday. But don't be surprised to see the number of things Mo Farah is running away from grow rapidly.
