Total of 19.28 miles today
It took a grand total of 3 hours and 31 minutes or about an 11 minute mile.
I’m not really happy that I had to take a break in the running but that was the only way I was going to finish.
When I run in Central Park each lap I always stop at the same water fountain to refill and eat a Gu. There is a shaded area where people take their dogs (most of them are larger breeds) and let them play off lead.
Today I got licked in the mouth and butted out of the fountain by a dog. A lot of the water fountain have a dog bowl section on them however she decided she didn’t want that water. All of the sudden I saw paws on the bowl and had a tongue in the face/mouth. But really what was I going to do other than just keep running the water for her. I never did figure out who her owner was but she was a thirsty one!
Also saw a doberman stalk another dog and he scared the shit out of both the other dog and the owner. It was funny to watch once I realized neither dog was aggressive. (I would hope no one would have an aggressive dog in the park off lead but you never know.) The owner was on the phone and had absolutely no clue what was going on around her. People like that scare me.
5 weeks. We have 5 weeks till Chicago. I’m starting to get scared.
