A little further


So, I've been trying to think like a dog! Who would of thunk it!!! I get moved from the best running area in the world into the dog infested backwoods! Now don't get me wrong...I am beginning to like it out here. When there aren't dogs trying to get a bite it is the most marvelous running you could imagine. I am going to post some pics in the coming days of the beauty of the Ozarks.Today I investigated a little further down Redbridge road. I kept going until I heard the deep bark of a big dog. I totaled 7.53 miles at 5.3mph. I have figured out one reason I am so tired and slow. All of my run routes are extremely hilly. There is NO flat! In some ways this is good.I'm needing speed work! I am considering a race this coming Saturday. If the Sweetheart says okay then I'll go, otherwise I will keep running up and down these dog infested roads and I do mean infested. If there's one dog at a house there's five! Today I passed a very run down place. Cars strewn about with the hoods up, trailers, metal parts, tires, and stacks of wood, the house seemed to be a combination of trailer and camper, three good ole' boys were cookin' something? They saw me and boy howdy did they stare! I heard the twanging of the deliverance theme in my head. Needless to say I was cordial as I speed up!Have a good one!!!

Do you suppose they were not so distant relatives of the Hatfields or McCoys?

I am surrounded by dogs where I live but they are all friendly and quiet. I wish you the best with the dogs.

You aren't hearing any banjos while you are out there running I hope. I bet it is hilly where you are. If you go to run Fargo you will feel like you are running downhill the whole way!
