I guess I'd be frozen in place instead of running away... being not the greatest mountain runner. Remember the video of the mountain bikers being chased by a bear this fall? I have the feeling had the bikers stayed put the bear may have just walked away.
I have to admit I don't carry any spray though now I will do as I never really felt so vulnerable before. Seeing that beast sure made me realise the pecking order of nature!
