The monster snapping turtle helped distract us from our angst:
|Seriously, he was YUGE!|
I was too afraid to find out.
Then, a man ran past us, totally in the zone with his earbuds, didn't even look at the turtle, and ran right in front of him. Nada. He left with all his toes intact. So, after some nervous squealing, we ran as fast as we could past the turtle. He looked pissed, but he didn't try to bite us.
Stephani and Megan: 1, Turtle: 0
We began our run with members of TORN (The Ohio Runners Network), and I caught up with them at Szalay's later when I bought some corn.
|Notice that I am the blogger, but I am the ONLY ONE who never knows where the camera is.|
Other fun surprises:
|My Ragnar belt buckle arrived! It is so heavy!|
|My hair is purplish-pink now! I love it!|
Speaking of dinner, I really need to regain control of my eating. I've stopped my nightly glass of wine with dinner (since the Chef isn't there to enjoy it with me), but I've replaced it with ice cream.
I fear the taper will not help this situation.
How is your taper going, Peeps? Ready to kill anyone yet? Have you eaten all your kids' candy bars? No? Just me, huh?
Well, I hope you do better than I traditionally do. Until then, run happy, Peeps!
