I hope that this is the first of many “Longest Runs Ever.” Took off early on a Saturday morning for a long run. Was going to go to Panama City Beach, but the weather was iffy. So I stayed close to home and ran. Was going really well until I was almost eaten by a roving pack of dogs. Some idiot let his dogs run free early on a Saturday morning. I had my headphones blasting, so by the time I heard the barking, there was on me. He was about 3 feet away, barking his head off. I had to stop and slowly back away. For a second there, I actually thought he was going to bite me. Wished I actually had some mace or something. There were 2 other dogs just behind him, both i the 50 pound range. I have no sympathy for people who let their dogs run free.
Anyway, the whole incident stole my running mojo. I slowly got it back, but it was not easy. Came into the house almost dead from the long run. Light-headed and panting like a dog . . .such fun!
