We took the kids to a park near the river where they could ride their bikes while dh and I ran. We ecountered our first copperhead slithering on the path. Cool to watch but a reminder of what sometimes lurks in the area.

Long ago, a derr jumped out so close to me while running.

What critters do you need to be aware of while exercising where you live?

We have rattlers.  There are also thankfully lots of bull snakes though, and we encounter them more often.  They keep the mice and rattlesnake populations under control.

We are rural, so I can see most anything, although usually nothing dangerous. We saw a chipmunk yesterday. We have beautiful horses as neighbors.

Mostly mosquitos.

frogs on the bike path, squirrels that can't figure out which way they should go when a bike or skater is coming at them.  Then there are the stick ninja's that will take you in a second.  My SO is still messed up from a year ago where he tripped over a stick and had a 16 yo teammate fall on top of him.  He was more worried about her, but he had pretty severe injuries that required a trip to the ER.

There have been bear sightings in my township over the past few weeks. This morning we saw a fox playing in the field behind our property. We get snakes, deer, raccoons, etc.
