Rebellious Legs

I can't stand not to run. I ran the Golden Hills Trail Marathon on Saturday. I worked an eight hour shift on Sunday, golfed 18 holes on Monday. Now I was ready to run. I went out Tuesday morning for a run but my body and legs said, "Um, I don't think so!" Fine. Boomer and I walked around Quarry Lakes for an hour or so. I went out yesterday for a run. Still, the body a bit hesitant, I was able to run a couple of miles. This morning I loaded up my hydration pack and strapped on my Garmin and headed out to Garin Garin/Dry Creek Pioneer Regional Parks East Bay Regional Parks with a six to eight mile run on my mind. My legs are still being somewhat controlling of my body so I ran a four mile loop that I love and called it a day.
There were goats grazing on the side of a hill. Usually they are in a fenced area. Today they weren't. Boomer thought perhaps they should be in a DIFFERENT area and started running toward them to herd them there. Luckily I was able to stop him with a loud "STOP!" Right then he was easily distracted by a bunny on our trail. He loves trail running almost as much as me but clearly for different reasons.
I'm working all day tomorrow so I won't be running. My daughter and I are heading over to Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival very early Saturday morning so no run that day. I'm hoping by Sunday morning my legs will be as anxious as the rest of me to get out and run around in the mountains.

Miles today: 4
Miles for month: 71.5

Hi how are you? I was looking through blogger profiles and noticed similarities, and found your blog interesting to me.

I have an art blog and am looking for new friends who comment and keep coming back are you up to it?

Take care and I value relationships and art obviously but most importantly my type of friends. I hope to see you soon...
