      A couple of punks flipped me off once.  That's not so horrible I know, but I'm a sensitive girl and I took it personally.  Had a really bad day after that.

       

      Two weeks ago, I actually had to jump off the road to avoid being struck by a car that seemed to swerve at me intentionally.  Made me realize that running against traffic is probably a good idea.  Wouldn't have seen that coming otherwise.

        I've had several near misses with cars and a couple that were moving at a high rate of speed. Some teenagers scared me once when I wasn't running against traffic (not sure why) and they came up behind me and honked the horn. I'm sure they got a nice laugh out of watching me jump, I wasn't amused so much.

          Very interesting topic! I guess I'm very boring as I only have a few lame cases:

           

          - Came across a snake during one run, but only noticed him when I was three feet from it. Needless to say I would've made an olympic huddler proud! At least for one huddle.Undecided

           

          - On a run with my two dogs, someone's german shepard came interested in meeting my two. However this dog was not "leashed" and continued to run after us for a solid 30 feet (felt like 30 miles).

            Lately.

             

            3 weeks ago, tomorrow.

             

            From the log.

             

            No garmin, lost it on the way to the run. Bad day got worse. Rolled/sprained my ankle on the *&^%$#@! sidewalk. High ankle sprain and fractured 5th metatarsal. No running for a few weeks. In a walking boot. Thankfully only Brandon saw me hit the ground. Rest of the guys waited but I was done.

             

            Did find the garmin, it was under the seat in the car. My son found it the next day when they went back to drive my car home from where I met the fellas.


            Obligatory runner.

              being surrounded by 4 absolutely gigantic teenage boys who groped and grabbed me. Fortunately I was faster than they were!

                ---Bumped by cars? - teenager at the beach thought it would be a good idea to screech to a stop in my way coming out of a 7-11 and bumped slightly.  I kicked in his headlight and took off.  Traffic's so bad he had no chance of catching up.

                ---Hit by cars? - not hit, but some have wandered very close

                ---Stepped on a nail? - I average about one nail a year, luckily none has ever gotten through the shoe

                ---Hit by a bike? - clipped once on the trail by a clumsy @ who had about 12 more feet of path more to work with.  He almost wrecked.

                ---Had things yelled at you? - all the time.  Group of teenagers in my neighborhood used to but I would joke with them.  Now they like me and go "looking good today" or "wow you're dragging"

                ---Honked at unnecessarily by cars? - all the time.  I'm so used to flipping them off without looking up that once I flipped off my parents.  Oops.

                ---Had things hurled at you? - a few times.  Usually trash.  I will get tag numbers and twice I have found the car and stuffed the trash inside said vehicle's tailpipe.  I am hoping one of them leaves their windows down.  Again, teenagers.

                ---Chased by a Zombie? - mmmm not yet LOL

                ---Bitten by a Snake? - No but I set a PR in the high jump when a 4 foot long snake slithered across the road a few steps in front of me.

                 

                What is the crappiest thing you have had happen, or that someone has done to you while running?

                During a cross country race I caught my spikes on a steep downhill and did a flip.  Banged my head and was out cold a good 30 seconds plus scraped my side up.  Had to drop out of the race.

                  Almost ran over a rattle snake.

                  Startled a wolf--it came within inches of me.

                  Been stalked by a strange dude in a truck.

                  Ran over a bee--partly stung.

                    I've been hit by a car while riding my bicycle, but not while running...  Definitely had some close calls though.

                     

                    Recently some teenager called out to me "hey bitch" (in the way one might say "hey girl") as I was running by.  I can deal with catcalls, but this one pissed me off.  I turned around while still running and promptly told him to go fuck himself.  He and his friend seemed shocked at my reaction for some reason...

                     

                    Oh, an also, I'm pretty sure I only wipe-out on trail runs at the precise point in the trail where there are people actually around.  Always feel a bit foolish when that happens!

                      Came round a bend on a forested trail and came across two 'runners' doing the nasty.  They were standing up and when they saw me the guy took off running up the trail leaving his GF behind!  She had to sprint off after him.  Real gentleman, that guy.  I turned around and ran a half mile out of my way just to make sure I didn't have to pass the girl and give her the awkward 'Howyadoin' greeting.

                        On my way up a huge hill, I swallowed a bee.  That was weird.

                         

                        People yelling out of their cars - this ticks me off, but I don't acknowledge them at all.

                         

                        Snakes in the summer make me jump and scream.  I'm sure it's hilarious for everyone else.

                         

                        Running towards an unleashed dog and the owner says "don't worry he's nice" - then he jumps on me and growls.

                         

                        No one has ever thown anything at me yet!

                         

                        My friend (who is very clearly pregnant at the moment) was running a few weeks ago, and some teenagers yelled out of their cars "cow".  Ouch

                          Last Thursday, while crossing the street in the crosswalk WITH the white walking guy crosswalk signal(so yes, I had the right of way) a vehicle that was coming from the main Street and turning onto the street I was crossing, stopped to let me finish crossing and got rear ended by the following car as a result. I felt really badly for them but even worse that I didn't stop my runSad I had to get home by a certain time so the hubs could go to work. Thankfully, it was a slow speed fenderbender(or clipper, as the case may be) but that fact that I didn't stop bothers me. I mean, he stopped for me & my safety. But yet I didn't return the favor. I suck as a person sometimesSad

                           

                          I have had more catcalls than I can count. A few times people have thrown things at me, like a cup of pop or an empty can. I once saw a dog poop can on fire and called 911 when I got home. I once got hit by a car turning onto a side street(similar to the crosswalk thing but it was a no signal suburban neighborhood street thing) but he just clipped my back MTB wheel and made me fall. He bent the rim, sot he bike was unrideable so he gave me a ride back home(scariest part really, the dude just hit me and now is getting rid of the evidence!) and then took my bike to get it fixed and returned it the following afternoon. Then he tried to ask me out on a date.....lol...that was funny.

                                I' ve been running long distance for 14 years now, so I've had a lot of things happen and since I"m getting

                                old probably a lot I have forgotten.

                                 

                                Bumped - yes

                                Hit - many close calls and some hood thumping and arm gestures on my part in those instances

                                Nail - no, big chunk of glass thru my shoe once but didn't cut the skin

                                Yelled - many many times....horns honked, nasty names.......the best was running down the Vegas strip at 6am with

                                          my hubby.......three jerks in a car one of them hangs out the window and yells at me "GET YOUR FAT ASS OFF

                                          THE ROAD". I am 5'4" and weigh 120 lbs, I guess that could be condsidered fat in Vegas

                                     

                                           Another time this car full of teenage boys drove by me 3 different times yelling, then threw a slushy at me.

                                           I kept running then cut down a side street that lead to a trail. Freaking lo and behold they were there under

                                           the train bridge smoking pot.

                                 

                                           Working at DMV it was natural for me to memorize licence plates and I had memorized them so I knew it

                                          was the same car. Funny part came a few days later. Older dude comes in to transfer that vehicle into his

                                          name. I ask him if he has teen boys.....he say's no I'm buying this car from a friend who is a cop, he as a

                                          teenage son who drive the car. The Dad is upgrading the car for him. I told him the whole story and he was

                                        pissed and says the Dad would NOT be happy...........he is a cop in my town

                                          told me when he went back to get the car he was going to tell the Father the whole story.........sometimes
