I even decided to wear the new Merrell tank I found at Winners for $20...so cute.
So, I headed out on a relatively unadventurous run. I thought you all might enjoy seeing the "wildlife" I encountered on my run today.
This guy is usually so friendly on my local runs, but today he was totally giving me the cold shoulder.
and then there was this little guy near my turnaround. I didn't even see him when I passed the first time...he was so quiet (that is super unusual for ALL dogs in Langdon - he must be new and not know that yet)
I love him. He is so soft - I nearly kidnapped him. Do you think the owners would notice if I swapped him for Allergyhound?
Soon, I was at 4k and ready to turn around at around 26 mins. Only a km from home but it was such a beautiful day, I wasn't even tempted to just turn the 8k into a 5k.
I then ran past the only hills in Langdon. Why, yes - they were left behind by the developer.
As I crossed the highway, I looked wistfully at a way that would have made an 8k loop if it was at all safe to run that way...alas it is not. Those damned redwing blackbirds nest up there...
So, I turned the corner and soon there was this guy singing away at me near the 6k mark.
and then it was just a matter of zooming through to the end. Once I was back across the highway - I ramped it up and aimed to finish strong and fast. That last km would have been around 5min/km if I hadn't had to wait at the highway to cross. Darnit.
