I run on a lot of trails. And these trails are apparently home to lots of spiders. I know this because I’m constantly running through their webs.
I have somewhat conflicting opinions of spiderwebs. On one hand, it’s really annoying to have spiderwebs in your face.* But on the other hand, every spiderweb I accidentally swallow reminds me that, on this day, I’m the first person to make it to the top of the mountain I’m climbing.**
* Though it’s really funny to watch others run into spiderwebs, because they do this very particular little dance. And since no one can actually see a spiderweb from any distance, it looks like the guy’s jerking his body around in spastic and convulsion-like movements just for the heck of it.
** Or at least I’m the tallest person to reach the top of the mountain at that point in the day….
