Northwest Running Hazards

Forget the common fears over glass, rocks, needles, pinecones and animal poop --- one of the things that worries me the most on barefoot runs, especially at nights, are these big beauties:


This is a slug I found outside my back door a few years ago. Its not even considered all that large!
If you step on one of these barefoot, expect to go down hard!

Wow, I never would have thought of a slug as a running hazard. I live where you have to look out for cactus and rattlesnakes.

Wow, I never would have thought of a slug as a hazard but it makes sense. Where I live we have to watch out for cactus and rattlesnakes.
