Incentive to run fast

Here's another quick post with a cartoon from Scott Brown.

It reminded me of one of the better runs I had in America. We were staying at Ashland in Oregon. I was out doing an easy jog through one of the city parks which suddenly turned into a very fast run when I saw the following sign:


Bear Sighted in the Area

If you encounter a bear:

  • Avoid direct eye contract [sic] with the bear.
  • If a bear stands on its hind legs, it is trying to detect scents and is not neccessarily behaving aggressively.
  • Give the bear a way to escape. Step off trail and slowly walk away.
  • If you see bear cubs, steer clear and leave the area.
  • Stay calm. Do not run or make sudden movements. Back away slowly as you face the bear.

  1. Ewen,

    Did it make you run as fast as you did in the nudist resort fun run with a bare behind?
