While out for a run today, I was humbled by a road runner.  Little guy ran up beside me, teases me with a race, and then turns on the “turbo boosters”, leaving me in the dust of his wake on the running trail.

Upon turning around, I began to understand why the little bugger took off:

Coyote in the arroyo

Can you see him?  I was only armed with my iPhone and I had to pause my nike+ workout and fumble for the camera app…

Coyote looking for a Thanksgiving meal while I was out trying to burn mine off.  Its not just retailers; nature doesn’t get the long holiday weekend off either.
