A few months ago I decided that I wanted to run a half marathon in February 2014 so I starting running some to start training. I knew I wouldn’t have anywhere to run when I came to South Africa so I didn’t do anything too exciting with my training. I kept joking though with my friends that I would just find a lion and I’d run in front of it to learn to run faster and that’s how I could train while I was overseas. Well, that kind of happened today but I was chasing after the lions instead of them chasing me.
We were told to walk the lion cubs down with us to breakfast this morning. The problem with this was that there are three of them and they have really short attention spans. Luckily they were better than normal about staying with us and we got to breakfast just fine. While we were eating though they got distracted and went adventuring. Naturally they ran into baboons who have the most horrendous warning call. The adult male baboon would have tried to kill them so we had to leap from our seats and run down the trail to find them and scare the baboons off. It was a most eventful morning.
