No Army of Full-Grown Alligators, but Still a Good Run

If their were an army of full-grown alligators, leaving them bottlenecked would've been tough within the fist 600 meters!

Tonight's run possibly, would've left me devoured within the first 600 meters? Although, in the long-run no alligator would hold a candle to a 6.5 mile run; even at this extremely slow "winter pace" of a 8:52mm. Granted I did stop, to talk with my cousin for about 2mins at mile four, not a gator in the world would've have caught up to me!

Maybe if I were really being chased by an army of full-grown alligators? I would've ran a few miles per hour faster from the get go, leaving them bottlenecked and as a last ditch effort resorting to zigzagging!

End conclusion, I would win a bet that..."I could outrun an army of full-grown alligators!" The truth is, an alligator is incredibly quick like a rattler, but they're just not as fast as myself and they can't maintain a modest 8mm! So it's curtains to a gator taking me in a land race! Actually, on a side note, a gator at the front door, might get me?

The land speed record for a crocodile is 17 km/h (11 mph) measured in a galloping Australian freshwater crocodile. (Source: Wikipedia)
