Glad I Had a Camera!
Before today, the most interesting thing I've seen on a Texas run was an alligator. This morning, it was foggy as I turned the corner to head into the woods on my run. I looked towards the hill that I have run on numerous times to see something that I've never seen there before - a pirate.
I was a little spooked. All decked out in pirate garb, he walked towards me. I saw his sword, but I had pepper spray. Finally, he was close to me. I said something. He didn't speak, but he smiled and kept walking. And so ends my story of the silent pirate in the woods on Halloween morning.
After seeing the pirate, I did 2 miles of hill running in the woods. I'm ready for the Pass Mountain 50K Trail Race in Mesa, Arizona, which is near Phoenix. Race day is November 12!
