I love running but I’m getting bored with my usual routes so last night I decided to shake it up! I decided to try out my new Reebok shoes from the Meet & Tweet and see how I like them. They are so light that is a big change from my current running sneakers.
There is a company with a really great running trail all the way around it less than a mile from my house. I’ve run it before but it’s not always the most quiet route. There are usually a lot of walkers and soccer games going on so you need to be ready to navigate.
Last night it was amazingly quiet. The only odd thing I saw was two people walking their goats! Yes I said GOATS. They were really cute they had bows in their hair it was really something to be seen!
I’m passing people and coming up on mile 3 when I see some Geese with their babies. Another super cute scene. As I pass them I’m not kidding when I tell you the Biggest Goose goes into FULL ATTACK MODE.
Wings raised, jumping and flapping them at me then bites me in the leg!
Meanwhile I’m shocked by the whole event and fall off the paved running trail and trip when my foot doesn’t fall where I think it should! I end up falling into the grassy hill most awkwardly! The goose obviously feeling bad for me for being such a klutz (!) flees the scene. Leaving me a sweaty mess covered in grass and dirt laughing hysterically fully knowing the security team and the people driving by had to see the whole thing!
I had never been attacked while running by any type of animal this was defiantly a first for me! And by a GOOSE of all things!
All things considered it was too bad of a run and I enjoyed my new sneakers! They are super comfy and light. I may have a new favorite brand 😉
This weekend is Mother’s Day!! Happy Day to all the Mom’s this e-card is right on the money!
Have you ever been attacked while running?
