After leaving the house, at 9 am, I made a quick call to Cindy. I had an important question to ask her, and it could not wait until I met up with her for the run. Besides, I wanted to make sure that she and Amy did not start running without me. The important question I had for Cindy was just how did she bribe our dog, Lucky, to whine and bark all night long – which made me too tired to get out for an early run – thus meeting Cindy and Amy for a run rather than Brenna (who was starting at 7:30 am)
Cindy didn’t deny it. She just chuckled and said “no way.” She was happy that I would be joining them.
Later, at the park I announced that I would *not* be running the full 10 miles with them; I was planning to run only 6 miles today. Cindy wasn’t sure how good her legs were going to be for running as she had cycled 100 miles, in preparation for the Death Ride, yesterday.
Well, that was the plan however, when we reached the 3 mile marker, I decided to run just 1 more mile out before turning back. So we all went 4 miles out and 4 miles back. Then Amy, who is training for a big triathlon, did 2 more miles.
I did have a good time running with my friends. I know that Lucky is missing his room mate, BoBo, in a bad way. Lucky sleeps in BoBo’s room and BoBo won’t be back from his trip to the east coast until Thursday. I am not going to be happy if we repeat last night’s affair; the only way I could get Lucky to settle down was to sleep in BoBo’s bed! So to Cindy, if you are reading this, I sure hope you haven’t bribed Lucky into keeping me up for another night. Otherwise, your phone may be ringing a lot earlier than 9 am.
