Ok, so maybe I need a few words to explain this one…
On Saturday I did my run on the Mountain Division Trail that runs parallel to the old railroad tracks behind my house. Every summer the state sprays the rail to keep the vegetation from taking over. Apparently, this year the local community has decided to take a stand on the issue. This creepy guy was hiding in the woods beside the trail on my run. I ran by him on the way out, but on the return trip home I saw him out of the corner of my eye and jumped about 5 feet across the trail and let out a little squeal. He scared the crap out of me! I’m pretty sure that if it was a real dude in the woods I probably would have run the fastest 5k ever to get away from him!
You can even see a lovely spike in my heart rate at the time I “met” this dude on the trail! I thought my heart was going to burst because it startled me so bad!
Have you ever come across anything weird while running or cycling?
