    The bib's on the left leg... and the bear has three feet off the ground, must be close to full gallop (do bears gallop?)....  Might have been out of sight a few seconds later....

     

    I think kittenkat meant that the bear is the bandit.


    probably not fast enough

      yeah, you're probably right, I considered it, but the subject at hand was some "weedy" guy?  Maybe that's slang for "furry," IDK...  Anyway, props to the bear, right?  From the look of the form, the splits have got to be impressive

        Look at his biomechanics, he's just 'jogging', not really trying.
        That's going to piss off the hobby local race winners if he beats them! 

          One memorable incident was on a local trail.  The runners around here use these trails all the time, but to someone who doesn't know that, it can seem extremely remote and isolated.  One segment of this particular trail is an old access road that is closed to vehicles, but if someone chose to drive back there, they wouldn't have trouble getting their car through.  Someone who was obviously unfamiliar with the amount of use this trail gets had driven his SUV back there and parked it at the top of a hill.  From his perspective, there wasn't another soul for miles.  It can look like that if you don't know better.

           

          Well, I crested the hill and was greeted by this dude's bare ass, pants at his ankles, his lady friend on her back on the open hatch, her legs tossed to the sky.  I ran right by them, muttering something like "jeezus ka-riced".  I don't know what their immediate actions were - keep going because the fluke interruption had passed, or pack up to try another day.  I hope they did the former because there were several runners on the trail behind me within just a minute or two.

          Yeah, well...sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

              cool. Where was that?

                Black bears can run about 35 mph, so I think he'd win.

                  the importance of totally weekly mileage should not be overlooked. Not to mention diet and sleep.

                    Well as the old joke goes, you don't have to be faster than the bear, you just have to be faster than the other runners.
