Vote: Web vs. Rustle

Which creeps you out more - Running through a huge spiderweb on an early morning run, or an loud and unidentifiable rustling in the bushes next to you?



. . . vs . . .

I HATED running through spider webs. Used to do it all the time at Fort Hood, and they had huge banana spiders up there. Ugh.

Yeah, I'm going to have to go with spider webs on this one too. I can force myself to ignore loud rustlings and pretend they didn't happen, but spider webs leave undeniable evidence all over you. I don't start my weekend runs at 11:30 because I'm lazy, I'm just trying to give all those ambitious 5:30 runners ample time to clear the path for me. And, because I'm lazy.

I would rather have a strange animal rustling in the woods beside me for an ENTIRE race than run into ONE web.

Spider webs! YUCK!!! The rustling freaks me out still but usually is nothing and goes away. Spider webs "stick" with you the entire run!

The rustle- even though I **try** to ignore it, it freaks me out...helps pick up the pace though.

Spiderwebs…last trail run one of these buggers bit me, nothing to serious just a mild rash : ( Besides around the woods of Mass most unidentifiable rustlings are small and fuzzy!!

Spider Webs. This is now my excuse for not getting up so early to run.
