My crummy hamstring is still giving me issues.  I can run.  But not fast.  I had to stop three times before the first mile.  And three times after that.

Right before I started to run I saw a rat-like creature run across the road.  It was a chihuahua or something.  I ran down the street, and there were three of them.  Two of them started yapping at me.  I stopped and paused my Garmin.  I squatted down and motioned for them to come over to me.  The two yappers wouldn't, but the baby one did.  Right as it got to me the owners pulled up in their green minivan.  The man honked the horn like the dogs would actually know that was the trigger to go back inside the yard.  I scooped up the baby and brought it over to the lady owner.  She was a Mexican gal.  She said, "Dat di daddy.  Dat di mommy.  Dis di baby."  It was real cute.

On the way back I noticed one of my neighbors had their Halloween decorations out.  They had some hand made gravestones.  Now I'm wondering if I should go tell them that they spelled the word 'they're' wrong.

Avg. pace - 9:07

Almost a progression run.  Hammy didn't bother me too much, but I could still feel it looming in the background.  I stopped once at the magic water fountain and again at the disgusting bathroom.  When I was almost home a neighbor girl saw me.  She must be 4 or so.  She shrugged her shoulders, threw her arms up in the air, and said, "Why are you still running around in circles?"  I told her because I love it!

Time - 47:34 (avg. pace 8:44)

Splits - 9:00, 8:47, 8:49, 8:40, 8:31, 3:47
