Others!

Today, driving home from the church, I saw other runners on my roads!!!!!! I am not alone out here!!! I am so excited! I wanted to stop, get out and chat....but I'm a runner and that would've been weird?!
The two of them were coming down my road as I was hauling firewood into the garage but I think they turned around as the dogs began to bark and chase them, I was going to assure them they wouldn't attack! Remember all my experiences out here with the neighborhood attack dogs!
Anyway, I am kind of glad I am not alone out here! Today was a good day for me on the roads. I felt better today than I have in a long, long time. My pace was stronger and my body seems to be responding to recent runs.
I still am keeping all my runs at 30 minutes with hill repeats. I did five today! Well, the big snowstorm is on its way. We are expecting 6-12 inches. Hope all's well with you! Peace!

I loved your enthusiasm to meet the runners, too cute. Didn't want to come on too strong? I would have chased them down the street. That's how I roll.

You have tamed the dogs, that is for sure. Glad that you are feeling strong and enthusiastic. Enjoy the snow!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
