I got out for a short 4 mile run around the neighborhood. It was a nice run, in the 40’s-I wore shorts for my run today!! Also a windshirt which came in handy, because it was very windy out.
I go by an Amish house about mile 1.4. Today a dog ran out from the house, barking at me. I gave him the usual “hi buddy” but he kept coming and uh oh!! I saw hackles up!! I gave him a sharp “hey!!” and he stopped, glaring at me. I kept going, although I knew I was going to have to run right past his house again. On the way back, I picked up some good sized rocks, but the dog was nowhere to be found. I think it’s time for me to invest in some pepper spray-this road is part of my normal running route, and I’m not changing it for an overzealous dog.
It’s hard to believe this wonderful mid weather we are having. I just hope it will last long enough for our FA on January 6, which is also my birthday. I am planning on running 41 miles, since I will be turning 41.
I guess I am middle-aged. I think that’s funny. I don’t feel middle-aged. Of course, I should live to be about 110, so actually I really am not at the half-way point of my life yet. I got plenty of years and adventures to go yet
