How can the days be getting shorter already?
It takes some getting used to this time of year.
Remembering that if we don't get out the door by a certain time we will need a headlamp and lantern or flashlight long before we get home.
Sunday was a very busy day. In fact I wasn't sure there would be a run at all but I thought about what day it was Day # 113 for those who are counting and I knew I just couldn't end on that number so late as it was LBM and I hit the road. S'ghetti girl had just gotten back from spending the day at a friend's house and she was getting her hair done for school the next day.
Just enough time for a quick trip around the 6.5 loop.
The setting sun didn't even cross my mind.
It was sunny and H.O.T when we left but as we ran the sun quickly fell behind the mountain tops.
Luckily when I approached this little fella there was still enough light that I could see him before stepping on him. He was not happy when I approached him to pull him off the road. So I backed off to see if he would leave on his own. I held my breath as two cars passed safely over him. As I approached him a second time a third car came and...
they were busy looking at me.
I felt terrible!
The driver realizing that he had hit the snake stopped, checked the snake (which was only a large black snake) and apologized for hitting it. As if it were my snake! It was nice of them to stop.
As we ran on, LBM in his limited language asks about the snake.
Me, "Yeah, honey the snake went with his daddy and mommy."
Me, "Yeah. He's with his family."
LBM, "No. thump (insert LMB-isum for the sound of the car hitting the snake!)"
Even in the semi-dark, I couldn't pull one over on him.
This is only the beginning of the animal tales from the weekend in rewind. Stay tuned for the next installment.
Congratulaton to those who took up the 10 Day Streak Challenge!
Here is a list of those I believe were going to attempt it.
Drop by their blogs and congratulate them.
If I missed you, let me know.
Send me an update on how you did, how do you feel, what are your thoughts towards streaking and what was your 10 day mileage total? Give me all the details!
Thanks for streaking with me. I am so proud of everyone who used me as a little motivation to get out there on those days when motivation is a little lacking.
