My eldest son had a cross country meeting at the high school the other night so I decided to drive him over. On my way there I told my youngest son let's go walking/running on the track while he has his meeting. I dropped him off, parked and started walking. Justin took off running. In the darkness I could see the bats,. They were everywhere just diving around eating the many bugs. I started taking note where they were and how close they were to my head. Then I started to panic. I finally calmed myself down and said mentally - Is this going to stop me? NO WAY!! So I kept going one foot in front of the other while my son kept running. He looked over at me and said "Isn't this awesome!! Those bats are so cool!!" I told him he was nuts and he ran off enjoying his run. When he stopped he ran 3 miles and I kept going. When I finished I walked 2 miles. It felt great even though I got a little nervous with those bats!!
Have a great night and watch out for bats!!
