A mountain lion chewed off my leg not long ago, so i don't think these posts are even one bit funny.....didn't know we had those things in middle Georgia....just kidding in case someone started to believe this....
Have those geese in my neighborhood....no attacks yet, but they do like to hiss at you if their offspring are nearby....oh, and they like to poop all over the road on which you're running, so i suppose that could count as an attack.....
A few bluejay flybys have happened....those things are aggressive as heck....
I guess a headwind doesn't count??

Speaking of Canada, you should check out this clip[/URL" target="_blank"> I found today while wasting time on Youtube. It's of Conan O'Brian posing as a Canadian mounty as he works the border for a day. My favorite part is when he attempts to sing Gordon Lightfoot...

First of all it's Mountie not mounty.
Second, everyone knows that the traditional mountie uniform has brown leather gloves not white.
The Gordon Lightfoot singing was pretty solid though. My sister actually went to a Lightfoot concert a couple weeks ago and she said it was great fun.
It didn't actually attack me but it just started following me and I had to stop because I didn't want it to wander away from its house.

That's awesome. I'd love to see him in concert.
I walked by a hawk's nest by accident, and it divebombed me, so I ran away. Hence the "inspired" part.
And I'd said earlier I wouldn't run because my knees hurt. Since my dad saw me sprinting all the way back to camp with a hawk following, (probably not as far as I imagined) he decided my knees didn't really hurt if i could run that fast.
HAHA i am really happy someone posted this topic. Lets see where do I start...
-bikers(oh my god. They're like, supposed to be our "brother" sport but they seriously hate me.)
-walkers. ok so they don't attack, but they just don't understand how to move out of the way. I usually don't mind being the one to move, but they always move in the same direction as I do. lol
-Deer. I haven't been actually attacked by a deer, but a deer and it's children have blocked my path.
-snakes.but again, they just block my path. or i see them on the side and i sprint for dear life.
Geese are vicous I have a lot of them that have hissed at me and attacked me. But the worst thing is when people get right behind you slow down and honk there car horns and cuss at you. Im 14 and 30 yr olds do this to me I'm just like get a life. Normal people hate runners because we will always be able to do what they cant.
ok, i can't beat the emu, but we were on a path with apple trees and some of the guys from the other team who started only 3 min. after the girls were catching up to us. They started nailing girls from the opposing team in the back of the head. it hurt
One time an old guy was watering his plants when i was running by and he sprayed me with the hose for some reason but i didn't mind because i was very hot.
