EL CENTRO — Rosa Diaz didn’t ask for a cup of coffee during her 15K run on Sunday morning, but someone decided to give her one anyway.

She said about an hour and 45 minutes into her run from Spreckels Sugars to the Imperial Valley LGBT Resource Center in El Centro, someone chucked a cup of Joe at her as they sped by.
