Adam over at The Boring Runner (nothing boring about that blog) is hosting this Virtual race. This is my second year doing it, do we get a special medal if we do 2 in a row?..Adam? Hello?
All right so the summer is here in Southern California and I am not happy about that. I HATE it. It has been really windy and so guess what is back with the heat and the wind? ALLERGIES! I cannot breath and my face feels like I got beaten up. Nothing was freezing over here I can promise you that, it was more a melting situation.
I went for my 5k and this was supposed to be an easy run because tomorrow I got 10 probably windy miles on the menu and then it is taper for Surf City and I don't want to get injured between now and next Sunday. At mile 1 something looking like Scooby Doo comes out of a back yard and scares the crap out of me....
He comes running in the street and cross to where I was. I froze. I did not want him to jump on me. This was a huge dog...like a mini horse.
I stood there waiting for his owner to come rescue me, or Batman or Superman..I mean anyone braver than me. After a minute or so I remembered to stop my Garmin. I know where my priorities are. Finally he went back home...and I ran backwards to make sure he would not follow me...no no that is not true, I ran forward but I did turn to look back at least 24 times. So I need to complain to the race director about animals on the course that are not on a leash...
1st in AG who were almost assaulted by a Great Dane.
thank you Adam!
