Running with the Animals

Running out of doors in South Texas presents many challenges like scorching heat, lack of natural water source and of course animals! My biggest fear is running into an alligator by the bayou or wild boars through the woods. Has any animal come out at you as you run? What do you do for protection?

I want to run my first ultra at Brazos Bend next April, the 50km, but they advertise WITH alligators!! Because the park is filled with them!! EEEP!!!

Have a wonderful day! Angela

  1. Hi, For me running with animals is very scary too. In NZ we don’t have anything to worry about. But this year while running in American there are all sorts of animals lurking. On most runs when I know there could be bears, I take a whistle and blow that occasionally. Singing is also fun. Maybe taking a dog for your run would be useful?
