|Subject: ||RE: Wildest Training Run Encounter|
1. About 3 years ago, my daughter was 6 mos. old and woke-up at some ungodly hour like 3:00AM. I figured if she is up and I have to be up w/her, I might as well put her in the baby jogger and go for a run. About 2 miles into the run along a park path, I ran into a pack of foxes (not "hot chicks"). They were scared and held their ground. I looked down at my 6 mos. old girl and decided that if I brought her home w/ any scratches, I would be in trouble w/ my wife. I turned around and headed home.
2. I live in south Florida. Just the other day I was running through the same park mentioned above when I saw a large opossum at the edge of a lake in the park. I was about 8 feet away. Suddenly, out of the lake springs a 7 foot alligator who snatches the opossum in his jaws. He then drags the oppossum under the water. Pretty wild!!!
This morning in fact, I saw 5 alligators in 3 lakes ranging between 4-7 feet. It is a good thing that I was running some hard 2000m intervals. Gators start their mating season now so we tend to see more of them. Also saw alot of wild parrots this morning.
