This morning I went out for a 6 mile run. It started off fine and I felt great. The weather is not as cool as it has been but even at 94% humidity, 64 degrees feels pretty darn good in the morning.
I ran the first 3.5 miles in a loop and then headed down the road for an out and back and that’s when it happened.
It felt like someone grabbed the front of my visor and ripped it down as my head was pulled toward the ground. It was so quick I barely had time to react but once I realized what had happened……………………. I laughed out loud.
And then………I kept going until I finished my 6 miles.
After finishing my run I came into the back door and yelled out to MacGyver.
Me: You’ll never believe what happened to me this morning.
MacGyver: What happened to you this morning?
Me: A squirrel fell out of a tree and landed on my head.
MacGyver: What? Are you joking?
Me: Seriously. It fell out of the tree, landed on the front of my visor, slid off, and then ran across the road.
MacGyver: Good thing it didn’t get stuck on your ears. Those things are like roadblocks.
Well played MacGvyer, well-played.
I must say that a squirrel falling onto my head is the absolute strangest thing that has happened to me while out running.
What’s the weirdest thing that has ever happened to you while running or walking?
