Earlier this week I was due for a run. It was warm out so I didn't take UC. I hooked up JW and cranked up the tunes. (whoops-- just remembered I was going to email myself the trip post...maybe tonight.) We headed out and did our warm up walk then started running like the wind. I wasn't even ten minutes in and I thought I was going to die!! Ugh... I thought this was supposed to get easier!? I pushed on through and got to the half way point and turned around.
Due to the awesome road conditions, I tend to run in the middle of the road. This leads to me looking over my shoulder every so often. Well JW and I were almost to the corner and I glanced back like usual. And then I face planted. Just kidding, but some day I will write that and I won't be kidding... it's coming! Ok, so I glance back. Something is coming. Okay, we'll move over. I glance again. Oh. That is not a vehicle. Those are horses. There are two horses running at us. Alright.
So I get JW turned around and we keep running. Although this was actually the easiest part of the run because I was focused on something besides my inablility to breath.... I get to them; luckily no cars decided to pass between this time. They have their halters on, so I put my iPhone and JW's leash in one hand and have a horse on my other. DJ's mom comes down the road then and brings me a lead rope. She says she'll go put her dog away (the reason the horses were on the road...) and then come back and get him. So I start walking him back, trying to keep JW away from the other one since she's scared of dogs. His mom meets me and takes him from there. JW and I turn back towards home.
UC sure is glad to see us. I let him out so they can play around the yard. I head into the kitchen to find a bag on the floor. A bag that used to contain a pizza crust. I guess he got even again...
Ahh just another day for me here!!
