I think I got my first ever "howdy" today. I saw a girl running with her dog coming towards me on Adobe. She was heading north on the west side of the Floodway. I was on the east side, but she stopped. Next thing I know, she's running right by me, but still on the other side. I guess she didn't stop for very long. But she did beat me to Brown. She stopped again at Brown and as I made my way over to the other side of the Floodway, she took off her jacket and tied it around her waist. I said, "Hi!", and that's when I got my first genuine "Howdy!" It was nice. Well, I ran my regular loop which was another mile down the Canal to University. She ran to the other side of the Floodway and beat me again. I'd say both her and her dog are fast.
