tired Fryman-Franklin Cyns 10.25 mi 01:48 10:34 pace


It's been pretty overcast and windy today so there not as many people as usual up at Fryman and nobody out running at Franklin which I normally love but then I was running down one of my favorite trails and I saw a coyote up ahead about 15 feet away. I stopped and wondered what I was supposed to do then turned back and went to run on the roads.
Not gonna lie, I'm a chicken. And I figured if my little 7 pound chihuahua can drag me around, an animal 5 times her size could probably do some damage. I was scared of every little noise from then on but I finished out my 10 miles.

My legs were totally heavy...not sure if it's still from the race on Sunday or from an hour on the bike last night.

Anyway, probably gonna go out for another run tomorrow, then rest Saturday and then OC Marathon on Sunday. I'm soooo not prepared but I'm just gonna try to have fun and enjoy some post race celebration with my buddies!

    Better safe than sorry with the wild animals, right? Sounds like a good plan for the weekend, have fun!

    They're more afraid of you I bet, but with your small dog in tow, I think you made the right call.

    Be careful! Do you have pepper spray?
