So, without giving away too much of the book, when Rusty changes for the first time, his body feels so foreign to him, he can barely walk. I mean, come on, the poor kid has paws. He's clumsy and awkward in his new, radically different body. His father ends up showing him the most effective way to get around: the four-legged running style of my childhood nightmares.
I thought I would share with you a short video that provided me with the inspiration for how the vicious, snarly, pack of werewolves were gallivanting through the wilderness of Aspen Colorado. You might remember the scene. This guys got the technique down. Could you beat him in a race?
He kind of gives me the creeps. How 'bout you? And just when you thought it couldn't get any weirder, apparently there are four-legged running races with world records. "Monkey Man" is world record holder and somewhat of a celebrity over in Japan. There's lots of video on this guy, I just grabbed one clip so you could get the flavor.
That last guy at the end wincing in pain, that would be me. I assume no responsibility if you injure yourself attempting to run like Rusty through your own woods.
