Pepper Spray Burns - the Short Version

Yesterday I read that the sound of spraying pepper spray might scare dogs away. Today a dog chased me and believe me - the sound did not scare it.

After running away from the dog, I wiped a bug off my face. A minute later, the skin around my eye was burning. I ran home fast!

After washing my face, I finished my run since I had only run four miles. My face burned for another ten minutes. I ran eight miles today at a 9:32 pace.

After using pepper spray, don't touch your face!
