I take far too many pictures of sunrises on my runs, but can you blame me?
In other news: this morning it finally happened. After two years of running, this morning I was actually chased by a dog. Even worse it was still dark, so I could hear the barking and snarling getting closer before I actually saw it. I was so tempted to just kick into a sprint, I mean, can you blame me? But luckily my logical brain kicked in and reminded me I’m far too slow to outrun a dog coming at full pelt, plus it was more likely to continue chasing me if I ran. So I stopped, turned around, staring it down and shouted “NO!” in the most commanding voice I could muster. Luckily for me it stopped, we had a stand off for a few seconds (although it felt like hours!) and it ran off back to its owner.
Nothing like an unexpected dog coming at you from out of the darkness to increase your heart rate!
