Tony ran a 10k trail run recently and writes:
I was ahead of the pack when I came across a cow that lowered its head and ran at me half way. I stopped and thought, hmm this isn’t a dog like last time and that cow moved fast. I wondered was it a bull?… pondering, stepping back slowly. I waited for the pack to catch up because there is strength in numbers I hear. After the pack caught up I was behind in 4th. I stopped to take a few pics of the scenery and thought whatever, just run.
Anything can happen during a race! On a trail you may encounter wildlife although usually we worry more about encountering a bear or a mountain lion. Safety first!
Congrats to Tony O for a 3rd Overall Male and 1st in Age Group Placement at a 10k Trail run even with a cow encounter!
