Avoiding The Wildlife On My Runs

There are a lot of small snakes on the roads these days. I’ve never noticed them in years past, although the only reason that I am noticing them now is because I nearly step on them every day that I go running on the back roads near our house.
I would guess that I see 3­5 of these snakes every day that I run. I about have a heart attack each time that I come within a couple feet of these things, and I always look behind me for several yards after I pass them to be sure that they aren’t chasing me. They never even move.
A few of these snakes are squished dead. Most of them, though, are alive, I think, although they don’t seem to be alarmed by my pounding feet that nearly smash them. I suppose they are sunning themselves on the road.
