I'm Back!!!!

We are in! The move went pretty good. Not to much damage in transit. A few nicks, cuts, bruises, I lost the power cord to my desk top? Besides that, a little frustration with the phone service etc. I have been able to run twice since we've moved, with my new Garmin!! It is really a cool watch! I don't see how I ran without one! 5.2 miles of trails Monday. Steep, rugged terrain. 5.11 miles of Center road yesterday. I'll call it the 2K hill run. There is a hill that is about 12 tenths long on this road and it is a butt kicker! Today, too many chores, errands, etc. I'll probably not run.
As to the dogs...about a quarter mile down either way I must contend with dogs. To the East, three big ones, German Shepherd, Saint Bernard, and, O boy, a Rottweiler!
The other way, three mixed breeds that yap endlessly! I decided to carry a walking stick as a weapon!? The big dogs ran viciously towards me but I tried to speak kindly, they didn't respond to I warned them in an authoritative (?) voice.."you better not come out into the road!"
They stopped!!! On the way back they didn't even run to the road! I hope they'll see fit to leave me alone.
Well I hope to catch up on reading your blogs asap. I wish all of you getting ready for an upcoming race the best. Still have much to do around here. Peace!
