Running into Cactus in Texas
Sometimes an article says it all, without me needing to add anything. This is an article about the dangers of running in summer in Texas.
When you see a steer start to paw the ground and lower his head I was informed that he might charge….
Unfortunately, my foot caught the edge of the dirt… and… the dirt had a number of those small cactus plants…. I tried to get up and continue running but my legs would not stop churning and kept pushing me forward on a four-point crawl on my hands and feet through this dirt and cactus….
The steer was so astounded by my actions that it stopped and I am sure was puzzled to see this human crawling through the cactus.
Unfortunately there’s no video to go with the article, so we will have to imagine this ourselves.
