        Yes, you should have immediately ducked, as there may have been a fireball headed your way.

          Not too long ago, I came across a person with self-inflicted fatal gunshot wound.  Very sad.

              Appreciate the sentiment, but sadly, in this deal, nobody won, of course.

               

              After coming across the person, I ended up following the story in the papers to read the circumstances of the incident--heartbreaking.

               

              I will sometimes say a prayer for the surviving family when I run by the spot these days

               

              PS:  I may have a bit of a curse when it comes to stuff like this--as a student, I was walking to class through a parking structure stairwell and came across a dead professor lying head down on the stairs with all of his papers strewn around him.  He was long gone--grey and sort of stiff, in fact.  Turned out he had had a massive heart attack.


              Am I doing this right?

                This wasn't on the ground, but it was weird....

                 

                Sunday morning I was about a mile into my run when I started getting dive-bombed by crop dusters. Yes, plural.  I actually slowed down and almost stopped at one point because this dude was flying low across the field right towards me.  Not that I was scared but it was certainly interesting for a Sunday morning.

                No excuses....

                    I think someone caught you on film:

                     

                    Good form.

                        A hot air balloon, then a zebra.  Both on the ground.

                        Within a 1/4 mile of each other.

                         

                        Not a zoo, just a run through the county roads.

                            I've also caught a hot air balloon landing.  That was much less noisy than the crop dusters.

                              Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
