I was running in relative darkness, when the neighbor's dog got loose and came barreling at me from his front door. Since it was so dark, I couldn't tell exactly where he was, but I could hear the leash on the pavement. I reached for my hat light (thanks Michelle!!!) and turned it on, just in time to see his jaws looking pretty much like this picture and coming right for my face. I was screaming at him to "Get Back," The light distracted him for a split second and I chucked my hat towards his owner and he went after it and his owner was able to grab him. Two other smaller ankle biters were still on the loose and circling and yapping.

Run safe, my friends!

Wise Tri Triathlon, though. And, I was going to finish it - regardless. My legs felt like lead on the swim, I threw up after my pulse shot way up going up a hill on the bike course and then what started as a good run, just spiraled downhill like a runaway rollercoaster. Good times. Sadly, I still came in 2nd in my age group. It was a small group. Bygones.
