A funny thing happened on my run this morning...
Thursday, August 09, 2012
On the schedule was a tempo run; I was to run 2 miles at a 10:21 pace. Well, I did my mile warm-up, stopped for a water break and to set up my garmin with the virtual partner for the 2 miles. Oh, I am running, and running at a good pace and then I look up and see a hawk circling above me and looking my way. This maked me nervous because I watched a few videos where birds of prey took down some good-sized animals.
I slowed down to a walk and kept an eye on the bird. As I am wallking, I hear a car and the driver rolls down the window and says, laughing, "There was a small deer running after you up the road. Did you see it?"
The hawk must have had the deer in its sight, not me. Whew!!!
Oh, yeah in case anyone is wondering, I did not make the 10:21 pace. My average pace was 10:46 for the two miles Second mile was the slow one.
