during my long run this sunday, i was touched by mother nature. i was running on a sidewalk on the brink of civilization, when a buck (probably a 6 or 7 point) walked right out in front of me.
i stopped dead in my tracks.
not because i was scared of the deer, but because i could see he was considering a sprint across a busy two lane road... i didn't want him to hastily make the wrong decision because he was feeling pressured by my presence.
we made eye contact. shared a brief moment in time. and then he turned back to the 'woods' and was gone.
it literally made my run... he was gorgeous.
