So it should really not come as a surprise that last night while standing in front of the thermostat (not changing it, just....looking?) I did some weird stretch thing with my leg and then fell to the ground. I know I can be a little overly dramatic at times, but I swear - my butt broke. There was little pull and then - there it was.

You know how people say that when they get in a serious accident their life flashes before their eyes? Well, for me something else flashed before my eyes. The 50k race. I swear to you, that is the first and only thing that crossed my mind. For the record, today it's sore but not bad at all - I ran 4 miles on it and there's barely any pain at all, so I think it was a little strain from me being generally awkward and it should be fine for Saturday.
In other potentially life-altering news, I feel the need to share will you all just how "out there" I live. The biggest news in town? Some black bears are chilling by the local school so no one can go outside and play during recess. So far authorities keep hitting them with rubber bullets and they keep coming back. Typically, these bears would be shot with sedatives and relocated, but we can't do that here. Why not? Because it's almost bear season, and authorities are afraid that someone will shoot the sedated bear and eat it in the coming weeks.

Have you ever been in a bad accident? If so, have you ever had "your life flash before you eyes?"
That's a no for me on both counts. I'm curious about it though. It is something made up for movies as a cliched line or is it true?
What freaks you out more: having black bears around in an urban setting or having neighbors and that shoot and eat said black bears?
Definitely the wild bears. I can deal with a little bit of hillbilly, but wild bears freak me out. Plus, these ones are a mama and two cubs. Protective mama bears do not sound friendly.
