3 miles @ home (11:13)

10 Aug

Comments: An early run…it had rained the evening before and the temperature dropped to 70 by 6am and it was overall a good run. My ‘favorite’ dog was out on the way back. He was in the neighbor’s yard and I saw him just after I thought “good he’s not here”. 😦 Today he was donning a nice ‘lampshade’ on his head. Looks like the poor pooch got something snipped.  😉  I am hoping that it might curve his aggressions somewhat, but by the way the ‘lamp shade’ was growling and barking at me I think it might not.

Tomorrow I am ‘running’ a local 5k with my 10 year old daughter and 15 year old son. I hope I’ll be able to keep her in check so she doesn’t exert herself during the first mile. lol My son is just going to walk, he simply is not into exercise and I am excited that he is doing this with us (if I can get him out of bed that ‘early’ in the morning).

Clothes:Adidas shorts, MiT technical shirt, Fuel belt (to carry my cell phone and mp3 players), Reflective Vest

Shoes:Pearl Izumi
