New animal count: 18 bears, 14 deer, 1 coyote, 2 dead snakes
Long run today, mostly dirt road and trail. 2hrs5 minutes. Probably about 17km or so. There were some hills. Some rather big ones actually.
At one point we came across a black bear, he was about 200 metres away. On the other side of the bear an equal distance away were a group of people and dogs. We yelled but the bear didn't move. Then one of the dogs started towards the bear....we took off because it looked like the bear would end up running from the bear towards us!! It ended up heading into the bush so we continued on our way, though there was a spike in heartrate. I am sooo done after that run. I hurt. It was great.
