If you are anything like me, you'd think Running of The Bulls in Spain has to be one of the most idiotic things a person can do AND I must mention, I do not approve of this treatment of the bulls.
But it has been an on-going tradition since the early 14th century and believe it or not, there are thousands each year that find it to be thrilling and perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Including, this year, Josh Norman.
The Redskins corner has always done things outside the box, but his Dancing with the Stars, performing in the Nutcracker, and flying with the Blue Angels is NOWHERE close to this one.
Always on the go, Norman's latest off-season adventure took him to the small quiet town of Pamplona, Spain (well quiet until over a million people invaded the city for the annual Running of the Bulls festivities) to risk life and limb for the opportunity of a lifetime.
Or as Norman put it in hashtags, #OneoftheGreatestdayseverinmylifetime and #Feedingthespiritthatliesinthedepths.
"A Single Picture can say a Thousand words in 1! with that being said, This picture does that number NO JUSTICE. I would start with 💯THOUSAND!!!! as the basement floor! & Elevate from there," he wrote in the caption.
The run is 975 feet total and lasts about two and a half minutes before the bulls are led to the bullring, marking the end of the run. But that is where the action picks up in Norman's Insta story and when I found myself holding my breath for the entire time Norman was documenting it. So, I can't breathe and Norman is using choice words to express the insanity of it all. This must end well.
And it does…. it's the only reason I can write this blog now that I have caught my breath and my heart rate is back to normal, because Norman came away unscathed, despite seeing the bulls come too close for comfort quite a few times.

It is a MUST for me to include this disclaimer ----kids, adults, millennials alike, please do not ever tempt fate like this. You could be seriously injured or worse, lose your life. Let the bulls be free and you safe with all limbs intact.
If you want to live on the wild side, I hear there are quite a few restaurants in D.C. where you can ride a "mechanical" bull. Much less risk there.
And Norman's need for adrenaline will come soon enough, Training Camp begins July 24th in Richmond.
