So Jennifer and I went running Sunday at Ring park, where I had ridden through the week before, and where many cyclists ride and people walk/run. We noticed a strong smell like there was a dead animal. VERY strong smell and slightly different than say a dead squirrel, so it had to be something significant, and close to the trail. We ran out and back twice (meaning we passed it four times), noting the smell each time.
Today my buddy Matt and I went for a run at the same trail system. The smell was still there, but not nearly as strong.
So glad we didn't find it. Can't believe we inhaled human decay. Pure nastiness. I never thought this would bug me, but I am pretty creeped out right now. Can't believe how distinct that smell is compared to decay of other animals.
Anyways, if you've ridden/ran these trails recently and noticed the smell, now you know what it is.
