i forgot all about these little icky creatures until this morning on my run. i'm thinking they were waiting for the warmer weather so they could come out and play. you never know where they're aiming because they fly up and down and are so erratic. last year, one almost hit me in the face as i was running along the golf course in my hood. so now i have a new strategy. when i see them flying all around (i can usually see them because they fly up near the lit up street lights), i put my hands over my face and peek thru my fingers as i run past where they are. thankfully no one is around to see how silly that must look but i just don't want to have a face full of bat or an eye taken out by one. With so many animal encounters, i'm beginning to think i live in a wildlife preserve...deer, hogs, wild turkeys, sand hill cranes, rattlesnakes galore, gators, bobcat, armadillos, racoons, etc...
enough animal encounters for today, i hope. still have round 2 on my run this afternoon since i woke up late. i have a really good excuse for waking up late the last couple of days. i won't blame daylight saving time anymore. the last 2 days, the park by our house that we usually do our afternoon/evening rides at, has been closed for hog hunting...that's right, hog hunting because they are a huge problem, so we have done our crit ride in the hood the last 2 days. let me just tell you how this ride just kicks my butt! the intensity of these rides is incredible thanks to jc and jm. i love riding with boys! we end up getting done around 7 or 8 pm depending on when we start the ride, so coming down off of the adrenaline rush is very hard. it gets me so revved up that come 9pm, my usually bed time, i'm still too wired, which then leads to my waking up later than planned in the morning. i still managed to get in a decent run, but not the full run that i wanted. no worries though, the day is young.
hope everyone has a fab day. the weekend is almost upon us, hang tight! much love and peace out!
