Coyote Joins 5K at Arizona State XC Championships


LINK


quote:

The 5K at the Arizona AIA Cross Country State Championships last weekend featured a furry bandit.

A coyote jumped into the race at the 1.5-mile mark and ran alongside the race’s leader, Harvey Nelson, a senior at Catalina Foothills High School in Tucson. Trina Painter, cross country coach for Flagstaff High School, said the coyote ran alongside Nelson and another runner for about 50 meters before pulling off to return to the brush near the course.

“Everyone was thankful that nothing happened to anyone,” Painter said. “It was just so surreal.”

Karlene Nelson, Harvey Nelson’s mother, said she wasn’t near her son when the coyote joined in, but her sister Marylin Aune, who took the now-viral photograph (above), was there.

According to Karlene, Harvey didn’t realize the coyote was right next to him. Instead, he thought it was one of his competitors trying to pass him.

“It didn’t distract him,” she said. “He just kept running.”

Nelson held on to beat the coyote and the rest of the field, finishing first in 15:25.

re: Coyote Joins 5K at Arizona State XC Championships


I saw someone get a bit by a dog running a XC meet at my school.


Our meet was around a "lake" here in town. It's essentially a huge pond, and the road that wraps the whole thing is 3 miles, obviously. Really trashy place, with predominantly trailers scattered about the place.

Well about the 1.75 mark, this dog comes running from out of nowhere, and bites the competitor running about 10 yards in front of me.

I didn't know what to do, so I took off sprinting for a little while to get away so the bastard didn't come after me too.

This is my biggest fear when I run my long routes on the weekends...there is about 2 mile stretch of trailers and old beat up homes, and everyone one of them seems to have pit bulls chained up in the yards.
I always get nervous along that stretch because if one of those dogs gets loose I have no where to run.

there is one house that has a sign in the front that says "beware of dogs, they will kill"

In HS, I kicked a dog that tried to bite me while running in practice. Don't think I hurt it but he cried and then ran away. never saw that thing again.

My worst moment was in a tri in Arkansas, I had a large dead fish bump into my face while trying to get a breath. Took me about 30 seconds to get over the shock and get my rhythm back.

You must have run cross country?

It looks like a thrilling event to attend. That is sarcasm so I don't have to further explain myself.

Ran that race many times. Lake Charles Boston (all black cross country team) used to run there, and those poor guys were scared out of their minds because of all the dogs and probably racist white trash around.
