Well I hope you have some time cuz I got alot! LOL!
Seriously one of my most interesting runs was probably in Tegucigalpa Honduras. I was with my two Blond sisters in their twenties and my 17 year old brother (also blond).
We had just gotten to the city and wanted to explore a little. There are two parts of the City the 'poor side' and the 'poorer side' seperated by a river. I figured how bad can the bad side be? This was very dumb! We ran across the bridge and into a market on the other side. Again VERY dumb.

A very busy market went crazy when they saw us! Everybody started yelling and whooping! As we ran through it was complete kaos! Some body grabed my arm. then two average (german shepherd sized) stray dogs started chasing me and one of them actually bit me on the leg! It started bleeding! We came to the end of the market and things didn't look a whole lot better. there were homeless people everywhere. a coulple of people butchering a cow in the middle of the street, blood everywhere! I felt like an idiot! Better yet there was no other way to get back but exactly where we came from!! Everywhere we ran people honked, yelled and gestured. but I have no idea what they were saying because my mp3 player was up too loud. (through I probably couldv'e guessed).
I guess when your a runner you learn to deal with the good the bad and the ugly! This one qualified as Ulgy!!LOL!

If any one thinks this is interesting tell me I'm thinking of writing some of my stories to RunnersWorld, a magazine here in the states!
Next time Panama.
Fique um Dues,

Josue. ;)

You see, this wouldn't have happened to the REAL spider-man. He would have escaped by using his web to swing to a safer place or shooting the web at the dogs. But you succumbed to the dogs. Mere dogs. How are you going to fight with actual villians? Obviously, you're an imposter!

Forget about the mask.

Hein makes a good case about you not being spider man.

On another note, great story! I am a runner too and I haven't anything like that to say! I've only run in one foreign country, Vietnam. It was along the beach and nothing happened at all. While you were running were the people honking and yelling looking angry or just excited?

I would be concerned about the infections from the dog bit esp if it drew blood!!
