Karen Williams, Valles Caldera runner, was attacked by a bear during mile 23 of her marathon, according to her Facebook post. Upon seeing the bear charging from about 15 feet away, Williams waved her arms and yelled "NO!" - but unfortunately the animal did not abandon its attack. "Then I was on [the ground] and being raked with claws and bitten," she reported in her post. "I cried out in pain and Mama bear did not like that so she hit me with a left hook and bit my neck and started to try to shake me."
Williams played dead, and eventually the bear lost interest. "I have a fractured right orbit from the mean left hook, missing parts of eyelid and eyebrow, injury to the belly of my left bicep and a lot of punctures and lacerations," Williams said. "But I am alive."
The runner is slated to make a complete recovery, according to her husband.
