      I hate when i forget to turn my watch off... or even worse when I stop it at a streetlight because it's a long wait, then I forget to turn it back on! Great run!!!

      I have never met a tame deer - mostly I feel like they will stomp on me, so I run with cars instead!

      I'm sure if they felt threatened here they would. But for some reason I can sometimes get within two arms-lengths of them and they just look up at me while chomping on their food.
