Anyone remember my close encounter with a coyote on a long run in Boulder last month? Well, I am happy to report that my biggest wildlife encounter now that I am back in New Jersey is geese, mainly dodging the geese poop that is left all over the paths I run on. But I digress.
Last night a friend sent me this article to update me on the coyote situation on the creek path in Boulder. Apparently, the coyotes are still there on the same section of the path. And now, a feast of burritos has been found and is assumed to have been left for the coyotes. The Coyote caution signs have been amended to remind people it is illegal to feed wildlife.

I won't get into my rant about feeding wildlife (we all know it is bad, right?). It made me mad (why waste perfectly good burritos? and endangering runners!) but also amused. Of all weird things that occur in Boulder (there are a LOT), feeding coyotes on a bike/running path is so random.
Have I mentioned that a big, huge, stuffed black bean burrito with hot salsa and plenty of sour cream and cheese is my go-to food of indulgence after a long run or marathon? After I completed the Beijing marathon in 2009, I made my friends
carry me to get on the subway with me to go to the part of town where there were a total of two Mexican restaurants (a luxury in the land of Peking Duck).
What is your favorite post-run indulgence?
I am already dreaming of amazing Texan BBQ I can get after the Austin Marathon (ten days!), but I am sure I will fit a in there some time, too.
