Had an easy nine on tap for this morning. It was pretty uneventful, except for a dog that harassed me on the back roads. Looked like a boxer, and it got really close and was barking non-stop. I stood still and was yelling at it, but despite that and the dog's constant barking it took the owner, an obese woman who didn't look terribly bright, a long while to open her door and call the dog back. She didn't even apologize. In fact, she said nothing.
I somehow managed not to tell her what I was thinking at the time, which I kind of regret, but my lack of a filter sometimes gets me into trouble so maybe it was for the best. Next time I run this route, however, I'll have the pepper spray with me and won't hesitate to use it.
Ran 9.2 miles @ 8:11/mile pace.
Lower to upper 70s, sunny.
Saucony Kinvaras, shorts, cap.
