Unexpected things while jogging/running

    I see beautiful things like bald eagles, bunnies, coyotes, on the trail by my house (which is cool because I live in the Northern part of a very large city), but I have also seen some gross/creepy thing. People passed out (maybe napping, I don't stop to ask), condom wrappers (safety first!), lots of empty beer cans and bottles, dead animals, etc.

    Unexpected while jogging was when my pants fell down! I walked to my normal trail and started running when my favorite pair of running tights just fell right off. It wasn't slow or gradual, it was all of a sudden. I hadn't worn them in a few weeks and I guess I had lost more weight than I thought! I immediately pulled them back on and walked home to change!

    One late night run, I found myself literally running from a burro who just wanted to play with me

    Once while running a damn snake slithered right in front of me. And another time glanced over and there was a couple right off the road down by the river totally naked just humping away, they looked at me, I gave them a thumbs up and kept running.

    This stopped my walk because I had to watch... a baby mallard duck was taken underwater by a fish. the mother duck started frantically squawking. 3 male ducks flew from across the lake and they begin attacking the fish until it releases the baby duck. Wild!

    It is impossible to meet that type of animals in my running path: coyotes, bunnies, ducks, snakes....no no....not even one, just lots of dogs with reckles owners.

    Once before striding into a long and solitary street with big big coffee fields in both sides I spotted a skinny crack head-looking guy wildeing a knife, this is very unusual in my community. Had to change my route that day, it was saturday morning.

    I run some hills so when I conquered a heel and start running down hill at my first stride I got urges...its terrible probably because of the continuous pounding and bouncing in the colon.

    had to take an emergency crap behind the pump house, and it looked like someone else had to do the same thing recently too :(

    The other day I saw a pelican try to take on a goose, wild!
