7 miles @ home (12:28)

09 Mar

Comments: It started snowing Friday morning and pretty much didn’t stop until Saturday evening leaving us with a good 18 to 20 inches of snow. (Our dog Midknight in our backyard on Saturday afternoon)


On Sunday the sun came out and I headed out hoping that the roads wouldn’t be too bad.

I ran into the ‘friendly’ neighborhood dog. He came charging at me from his house. I saw the owner and thought “Sweet, I won’t have to worry”. BUT the owner yells at his dog once and gets into his car. Of course the dog did not stop barking and following me (in the road) until I was past his property. Oh, I was so pissed and flabbergasted that someone could be so irresponsible!

Other than that the run in itself was good. The snow made it a challange and so did the snow plows, but the sun was out and it was sooo pretty! I don’t think I have ever seen so many people out since I started running that route. Everyone was busy shoveling all that snow. Nice!

Even though the run was slower than I had hoped, I enjoyed it and made it home without breaking, straining, or pulling anything! 🙂

    ARGGGGHHHH! I can’t stand when the owners don’t take care of their dogs. It’s really our biggest hazard – though dodging plows would be right up there I’d think. Haha!
