I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM- 50 deg, a bit muddy from rain last night. My quads were sore and I felt ploddish all ran. Did 9 miles, 8:15-8:30-ish pace. Saw ~20 turkey (had to bushwack and jump a creek once to avoid an aggressive tom), 5 deer, and a coyote.

I've only seen a few coyote in my life. My dad has only seen a few in his life and he's spent a good amount of time in the woods (but they live out in the boondocks). Man, are they eerie when they howl at night! In my experience suburban animals do not give much of a hoot for people. I have attempted to pet several deer. Got pretty close, but not quite.

Living in a high arid desert we see coyotes all the time, chasing the antelope out in the sage brush!

Coyotes have only been in this area for a few decades. Lots of talk about seeing them more recently, including swiping some pets. I've not seen them here until the past few years when I run on the trails at my work, and only about a half dozen times or so.
