Ran a snowy trail by my college and thought I saw a deer up ahead but as I got closer I saw it was a coyote eating a persons pet dog.

Neatest thing found on a run:

Running pet peeves:
People trying to race me when i'm running for fun on an easy day. Calling runners joggers. People who use treking poles for pretty much flat trails. People who take long phone calls on the trail especially about work.
