Geese vs. Turtle

I ran three miles by myself today--just me and my ipod.  I was totally focused on the music, when I was less than a foot from a hissing goose.  If you haven't been around geese, they are dirty, poopy birds.  And they are BIG--coming up mid-torso.  I think I jumped ten feet in the air and gasped aloud.  Wonder what the passing cars thought?
Fortunately, I saw my second goose "incident" to maneuver around (actually between the two) the goose.  It gave me the stare down, but I kept going.  Sometimes I'm cranky and hiss back.  Today was too beautiful.  I felt really good . . . but I'm still slow as a turtle.
