What's your plan "B", because you can't outrun this guy.
But don't let that stop you from running!
Just have a plan "B", that's all.
Ran the old by-pass this morning. 4.65 miles @ 45 minutes. Started at 7:08a.m. and finished up at 7:53a.m. Nice morning, calm, about -3*C.
Never run into a bear but did encounter two dogs. A blak one at the place just East of the old drive in theatre. And a white one at the house by Spruce Products on the curve. No problem they just came out and barked a bit. Any dog that lives along a highway and is a survivor has learned the danger of traffic and most likely won't come out full bore.
