@Bob: it's like the soul were possessed by the devil.

But it's not scared... it's fast.

¡Qué raro!

We have the exact same expression in Dutch (well almost..)

'Rennen alsof de duivel je op de hielen zit'.

Lo que significa más o menos:
'Correr como el diablo va a cogerte' (para apoderarse de la alma de uno/ to possess someone' s spirit)

¡¡Me gusta esta expresión!!
