Josh Norman isn’t the first, nor will he be the last, professional athlete to take part in a potentially dangerous recreational activity.

But sometimes adventure is good for the soul.

‘This picture does that number no justice’

Norman, the Washington Redskins cornerback, posted a photo to Twitter and Instagram on Wednesday showing that he’d taken part of the Running of the Bulls in Spain.

He’s wearing a broad smile, with the sun behind him.

“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 100 THOUSAND!!!! as the basement floor! & Elevate from there,” he wrote.

In a hashtag, Norman said it was one of the greatest days “ever in my lifetime.”

Spanish media outlet El Mundo posted a video on Twitter showing Norman, his long braids partially covering a red kerchief, in the moments before the run.

Washington likely wasn’t too happy to find out one of its players did the running, but it seems like Norman did a little more than that. Watch:


Norman posted several videos to his Instagram stories, at one point saying, “This is a great experience.”

There are people injured or sometimes killed during the running, often gored by one of the bulls. But Norman appears to have escaped unscathed.
