Some times when I'm running I think about what I'm going to blog.  I had just gotten to the Floodway and I thought I heard a vehicle coming up behind me.  I thought, "That's impossible.  There's no way they could've gotten the gate opened that fast."  I turned around and it was a guy on a bicycle.  So I thought, "That's not really blog-worthy."  But as I watched the guy ride off into the distance I saw him approaching a man walking two dogs.  I could tell that one of the dogs was restrained and the other was not.  The dog that wasn't on a leash barked at the guy on the bike.  I hoped he would get the dog under control by the time I got there.  However, he did not.  And the dog came at me barking.  Since I'm not afraid of dogs I just kept running and said, "Nice puppy."  I looked at the old man and told him good morning.  He just looked at me with a grumpy old man face.  So I wondered if it was even his dog.  Maybe he was grumpy because this dog was loose and wouldn't leave him and his dog alone.  Who knows?  Well, I got to the Canal road and headed back south.  I could see across the Floodway that the other dog was still with them.  The moral of today's story is - don't be a grumpy old man.

My legs were still sore today, but by the time I was almost done, I was feeling strong.  Good sign.

I woke up this morning with a sore throat.  My run wasn't great, but it was ok.
