Running Randoms.....

A few random things about running that I encoutered in the past week:

A HUGE deer: while running over the weekend, I came upon a HUGE deer. Now I have seen deer before, but nothing like the size of this one. I am guessing that it was young because it didnt have antlers (or it was a large female) but it was gigantic. I mean, it was the size of a cow! Are they normally that big? It just stood there while I ran up to it on the road. I tried to make a lot of noise to scare it away (from me, and out of traffic) but it just stared. Good thing no one else was around to hear me!

 Similar to this, but larger!!
I ran into a tree: yep, you heard it right. On my early morning run last week, I ran into a tree. Well, I was running and there was a large, low branch in my path. I went to duck my head, but I didnt duck enough. I smacked the top of my head into the branch. Whoops!

A crazy mumbling runner: while walking to work this morning, I saw a runner approaching me. As she got closer, I could see she was talking to herself, saying "....almost there! I'm almost there!" It was so strange....I sure hope I don't mumble out loud while running! I'm pretty sure that I don't.....

This list goes right up there with the cat on the leash. Have you seen anything strange while running??


  1. And I thought I am the only clumsy person - love your post! Take care!! :)

  2. sometimes, i dont realize, but i am singing out loud and ppl give me funny looks! lol

  3. Sorry you hit a tree...but I like that there are other people out there who do that as well.
    Last week in a residential area (i.e. no ponds/lakes nearby at all) there was the random mallard duck wandering around. It was very strange.
    Oh boy...I don't think I talk out loud...I could be wrong though.

  4. Those are some interesting occurrences for sure!

    I can't say that I've seen anything particularly odd lately... although hubs saw a guy walking his ferret on a leash the other day!

  5. Hi Sarah,
    Yes, that deer looks huge!! It must be eating pretty good and how funny that it didn't make a move when you made all the noise.

    Sorry about your running into the tree:) I can totally see myself doing that sometime too! Take care lady!
