Feeling 100% better this morning. Using a vacation day, slept in, and then ran. Didn't like the scale much this morning but I know about that and am constantly working on it. Dealing with hormones has added to that woe but we won't get in to that here.

My daughter rode her bike with me for the first 1.5 miles. I made the mistake of running by the house for water and she saw her escape route! It was already fairly warm when we ran and I am dealing with cotton mouth from the medicine so the water was necessary. Plus 1.5 is probably good enough for her. I had some company on my run and I had some peace.

Last night a neighbor didn't stop their dog from chasing us. This morning I had the same trouble. The dog running and snarling, barking and lunging at me meanwhile the owner screaming his name, saying he won't bite, he won't bite. I had run to the end of the block where i had seen some construction workers. I grabbed the bed of their truck ready to jump in when the dog finally turned around and went home.

So here is my question for the day...if the owner is screaming at the dog but not moving towards the dog or not trying to get the dog back in the yard, other then screaming, can I spray the dog with my HALT spray?

5k tomorrow within 20 miles. Can't pass that up!

Beau or Bo (?) my running partner in training is at my feet. He can't run with me yet but he loves to like the salty sweat off my legs when I get back! No one in my family would let me name him "Pre"!
