A dog chased me while I was running through the park today. There weren’t any runners in front of me to distract the dog so I had to dodged the little guy solo. It was every man for himself. The small four legged creature vs. the little runner. The fluffy caramel pup was off his leash and ready to play and I was not having any of it. Then I heard the owner calling her dog and then calls to me, “Just keep running!” I am pretty sure my face said it all as my ginormous eyes read, “…umm, are you serious?! The more I run the more your dog tries to run up my leg like it is chasing a squirrel up a tree!” It was just like a circus. Animals disobeying their ring master and audience members becoming apart of the show.
I did just keep running and eventually the dog (who I think was named bubbles) didn’t care to run any further. Thanks, bubbles.
2.5K later I ran passed a runner friend and as I looked up to give them a smile and a wave it turned out to be an outside of running friend who I haven’t seen in a while! Amazing, right? You can guess what happened next. I got picked up and twirled. I love an eventful run! Once my two feet were back on solid ground, I waved goodbye and continued my run.
By 9K I was running out of steam. My legs felt so heavy and I found it hard to see the end of this 15K run. The problem I found today was the more I slowed down my pace, the harder it was to start moving faster again. I just kept trucking through and surprised myself when I added an extra hill to my run. All in all it was a good run and I couldn’t wait to get back home and eat some delicious strawberry and kiwi yogurt!
