Today on my run through a forest next to my house I noticed a horse fly kept on going into my hair, I kept trying to hit it away but it always came back to me, I tried to out run it by literally sprinting a quarter of a mile but that little fuc*** was quick. This thing was smart also, I kept zig zagging and making sharp turns but the little guy didn't quit intill I eventually ran into a group of people and it attached on to them. I looked back and saw that now those people were going crazy swinging all over the place trying to get the fly off of them.
Why did this happen? This is my first time in the "deep" south so I never really had to deal with these huge agressive bugs. Can I do something to avoid this, other then stop running in this forest.
