The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Flying Monkeys. Really.
Roads were made for journeys...
We have a lot of Canada geese around here too. I don't know how good I'd be at chasing one, either. Half the time I'm afraid they're going to start chasing ME!!! Especially when they have young ones, they're very aggressive around here. Come within 15 feet and they'll start hissing and coming after you...
I was running in the Black Hills of SD a few years ago and was chased by a cow (female). She was just curious, I think, as to what strange person was trotting along her cow-path.. probably wouldn't have hurt me at all.. but those things are HUGE and I wasn't about to find out!
To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago. Your training started the last time you hit the road. John “the Penguin” Bingham Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you're standing outside the fire
Finder of good newts
It's hard to look down if you don't go up
Also turns out they aren't shy & have no issue with flying down shirts & pants!!! Also turns out that I had no issues with ripping off my bee infested clothing in my front yard while doing this interesting arms & legs flailing, screaming, slapping dance!!
Bet that was pretty funny!
Okay, maybe not funny for you. But I'll bet it was funny for your neigbors. I don't suppose anybody had a video camera handy ...?
