Bobcats & BQ's!
I like to run up a hill in the woods near my house. From the top, I can see the creek in the picture. In the woods, I usually only have to keep an eye out for deer, snakes or maybe even a coyote, but I've heard that we have a bobcat living there now.
I always wondered what I'd do as a runner if I lived somewhere where there were bears or wild cats and now here I am in Texas with that very problem. I try to remember to look out for wild animals, but sometimes I forget. The other day I was startled when I looked up to see a very large turtle in my path. I sure was glad that it was just a turtle.
In my last post, I wrote about wanting to BQ. I'd love to qualify for Boston and to achieve more personal records, too, and I'll keep working on those goals. It's good motivation and since I love to run, it's fun. I hope that in 2013 or 2014 we are all able to meet our goals and find ourselves with shiny new PR's and BQ's.
It's pizza night at my house! Here's a photo of a thin crust pizza from Papa Murphy's Take and Bake. Before baking it, sometimes I add extra toppings. This time I made a special Thanksgiving piece with sweet potatoes, corn and turkey. I liked it!
