How to Kill a Dinosaur…

I run regularly to be fit and to challenge my limits.  But running has its hazards.  You could overstress your muscles and be injured.  You could run out of oxygen and collapse.  You could be run over by a bus and never make the next mile.  Or you can be chased by a dog and finish early.  But last Sunday, I had the most dangerous experience while running.  I was chased by a dinosaur.

I was running along my favorite jogging path when the ground begun to shake.  Pounding can be heard from a distance.  The puddles of water would create a whirpool as the sound gets nearer and nearer.  Suddenly, a full grown T-rex came from behind ready to bite off of my left foot.  Luckily, I was able to pick up some speed and managed to escape those sharp teeth.

I saw a piece of wood and immedately grab it and hit the T-rex on the head.  I poured out every once of strength I can muster to make sure it will do some significant amount of damaged on the creature.  And it did.  With one swing of the wood, the dinosaur made a hard fall on the ground.

Unfortunately, I was disarmed when it threw its large claws to my direction.  I used the wood to shield my face but it was dislodged from my arm.  I have no choice but to use my hands to defend myself.  I know I have to make my move while T-rex is on the ground.  I can’t allow him to regain his position and endanger myself. 

He was struggling to stand up and looked like a cockroach on its back.  I grabbed the oppurtunity to keep on punching him with whatever was left of my strength.  I did stop until I saw him getting weaker with every punch.


A few minutes later, I felt T-rex is starting to move slower.  I wrapped around my arms around its big neck and started choking him.  I squeezed my hands hard enough to maintain my grip.  It was moving furiously and gasping for air.  Then, I can hear it heartbeat getting fainter and fainter.  Each beat is getting longer apart until I can hear nothing but my own heartbeat.  He’s dead.

I hurriedly left the scene and took a rest.  I still cant believe that this could happen.  Just a word of advice then:  Always be careful when you run.  Though, this event will not stop me from running again, but it will surely be a scary memomy.
