|this made me giggle|
Didn't get a photo taken today. Had to rush out the door, ran my tail off and had to get back. Definitely a good speed workout tho.
The bear photo above made me laugh. I sometimes envision what I would do in certain situations when I am out running. This is one of the wild scenarios I play in my mind, especially if I'm running in more of an isolated woodsy area.
Which led me to wonder... what DO you do if a bear is chasing you.

Here are some of the funny answers I read on Field and Stream:
"What do I do when I'm being chased by a bear..."
from Drop your pack if you have one. This could be your best chance of distracting the bear. If you stay calm, it may get preoccupied with your pack, especially if it contains food and allow for a clean getaway. If the bear has already started chasing you and it’s you it’s after, I would revert to the previous two answers.
+5 Good Comment?
from Throw it a jar of honey! That one in my kids Hundred Acre Woods books sure seemed to like it!
Though this next one seems to have some pretty good suggestions:
Learned something new today. Bring a friend who is slower than myself! However, this might not be easy. Everyone I know who runs... runs faster than I do!
