Donald Sanborn was halfway through the Garden of the Gods 10-mile run Sunday when he snapped pictures of a bear crossing a roadway near Colorado Springs, AP reported.
Sanborn said the bear seemed to be contemplating whether or not to cross the road when a gap in the runners appeared. The animal took the opportunity, and made it's way to the other side.
Sanborn posted photos of the bear on Facebook Sunday.
"Why did the bear cross the road? To scare the runners and make me lose precious time in the middle of a race," he said.
Sanborn told AP he's seen animals during races before, but this is the first time he's seen a bear.
