Dive bombed by a bird of prey

So I am running in the woods, checking my HR on my Garmin watch and working out how much further I have to run - being very serious and focused on my 30 min run when I heard a loud "whoosh" and thought what the hell was that ! Looked up to see bird of prey flying low in front of me - after the initial shock, I couldn't help laughing as I reckoned I was running so slowly I was easy prey ! Every runs different !

I suppose you are on the look out for zombies when you run - now that is a great motivation to keep running ! ;-)

I used to get strafed regularly by an owl when I took my dog out late at night. The bird would come across the lawn to get us 😃 Owls are noisless But I got that I would be 👀 out for him. At least I was half expecting it. You must have jumped out your skin. Rig too! Eek!
