It was humid and hazy this morning, but the lack of sun seems to do me well. 73 degrees and 94% humidity, but without the sun beating down on me, it feels like my recovery was almost instant.
Lovely, not...but good for me, yes :)
"Do you know where to park at the school, and what door to go in?"
Me, internally- AHHHHHHHHHHH! I thought I was being punked. I do work at a school and register students, but there's no way she knew.
I explained where to go, and took off before she could keep talking.
She was yelling as I took off, sorry I interrupted your run. Reallly!? I thought it was odd. Oh, and we were like a block from school, I guess she was nervous about going in. I checked my laps, the whole conversation was less than a minute actually, so I guess being nice is more important.
As I got to the end of the path, a bunch of geese were blocking the way.
As I approached, I expected them to take off, instead they turned and started to honk at me. I got nervous, I slowed up and honked back, I thought maybe I was going to get pecked to death...luckily they waddled on, so I could get by, but it was odd.
This path runs past the school and leads to the next neighborhood I run in
Most of my run route is in a neighborhood. I could see a guy about five or six houses down getting in his truck in the driveway. He had the truck on and running, but just sat there, so I kept on my path. He had glanced at me several times, so I assumed he was waiting till I passed. I get steps from his driveway and he throws it into reverse...sigh...seriously...big sigh....he inched out of the driveway, literally inched. I looked at my laps later, I stoood there 30 seconds. Arghh, I hate stopping.
My route home takes me by the school again, a crew was there cutting grass. I scared a guy weed whacking. I guess he didn't realize I was there, and he about jumped out of his skin. He jumped so much he made me jump...good grief.
I drank a liter of water with Nuun during my run today. I always have a few rough moments when it is hot, but overall, I felt pretty good.
Normally, I would have nothing to report from a run other than seeing an occasional deer or fox, but this morning was strange, it felt busy.
Hope you have a happy Friday ❤
Have you ever had anyone flag you down and make you stop running for silly questions?
Encountered wildlife that refused to move?
Do you enjoy overcast days?
