With rain in the forecast for Thursday (spoiler: it didn’t materialize), I wanted to get in the longer run today. Thursdays are busy for me anyway. It was cooler and it was cloudy so it was a decent run. Despite the groups totally hording the path at the park which caused me to have to run on grass, multiple times. I channeled the zen of the park and there was no swearing. This time.
Came home after my meeting and quickly changed to try to get ahead of the forecast rain. I don’t like running at lunchtime, but you do what you gotta do. I was tired but a bit angry — one of those days — and I took it out on the road. Unfortunately all those little annoyances continued. Some days you aren’t as good at letting it roll off your back. Of course it never rained . . .
Hello, Fall! Although overcast and chilly, I’ll take this kind of weather over last weekend’s weather any day. Still felt as though I was dragging some but overall it was a good run and the only double digit run before the half at the end of the month (if you don’t count the half last week, of course).
Favorites of the week
Although today I’m at my parents, the next few weeks should be a bit calmer (and most likely cooler, despite some warm temps forecast for the beginning of next week) and I’m quite ready for that.
Have you ever heard of DogSpot (find the app here)? Definitely wasn’t on my radar but we saw it when we stopped at a service area on the way home from OCNJ. Basically you join via the app, and at certain locations there are essentially doghouses (that lock, and have air holes and air conditioning, and a puppy cam) that you can use for your dog while you are in the business. I can’t really see myself ever using it but it was intriguing.
The ones we saw were right outside the entrance to the service area.
Let’s get the conversation started:
Would you feel comfortable leaving your dog at a Dog Spot?
Any fun plans for Columbus Day?
What are you looking forward to right now?
