RUNNING (Mt Greylock) 2:00:00 
shoes: Hardrocks v2
Running to the highest peak in Massachusetts. Got about 3/4 the way up when I heard cracking in the forest next to me...
I had a brown trouser moment when I saw a bear 20m away from me staring. Decided it was better to stop (although my head said RUN!) and a also managed not to take a photo. Backed off slowly and continued to walk for a bit to make sure i wasn't followed.
Met another 3 bears further up the hill so decided to call it a day and run back down.
Also 26degrees was a bit hot for hill climbing.
