Today I had an interesting encounter with a Pit Bull on one of the side roads close to my house. I saw him in a yard and was considering turning around but he disappeared and he didn't bark or anything. But he tricked me and hid behind a truck and snuck up from behind. He gave me a little nose nudge on the butt and started getting a little aggressive. As long as I walked he didn't bother me. So for about 1/10th of a mile I had to keep Mr. Pit Bull happy : ( Finally he found some dogs to pick on and left me alone. I thought make to Caesar the Dog Whisperer and I was firm and assertive! HA! Guess I will be have to find another route since Mr. Pit Bull has moved in. Anybody out there have a scary dog encounter?
The next time I post I will have ran 13.1 miles for the first time! Exciting stuff. I bought a new outfit to celebrate. Maybe it will make me run faster : )
