10K on the 10th

Another beautifully organised run, what a day!!

The weather was just perfect, a little overcast and pleasant temperature.

I had trouble rounding up my Pace Bunny, he was off way ahead of me before I knew it....I think he was chasing a Pony Tail....so that just left little Dino and me to suit up and get ready to hit the trail.

Luckily for us the Cave Lion Lily was happy in her den and we weren't bothered by her at all.

I think she'd been out hunting all night and was resting on a full tummy, well truthfully she'd just finished her breakfast.

Just the sight of her eyes watching Dino and me, well let's just say we were safer with her being in her den.


Dino was causing trouble, he kept trying to hide in my shoes....you just can't find a good dinosaur anymore, always causing trouble these youngster's.

Once we got the Dino out of the shoes off we went.
It was beautiful out, the trees are starting to bud, tulips and daffodils are up and people were out raking and cutting their lawns. A lot of renovations were going on, chainsaws and skills saws were going full bore, reminded me of living at Possum Lodge with Red Green.

Knowing that I have my final **23K run on Sunday, Dino and I just loped along doing our 10:1 (run 10 minutes and walk one) run....enjoying the sights and sounds.


We finally got back to the cave without seeing any of these....

All in all it was one of the nicest runs I've had in awhile, no pressure, no time, no never ending route......

And

it was done in 1:14:29!!!!

Thanks so much Nancy for Uniting the Cave people....yet again....you are the BEST!!!!

**You'll get a run report for tomorrow's 23K, we are running the front portion of the Marathon in downtown Ottawa tomorrow.....it will take us across the river over into Quebec and then back to Ontario, following the river up through a very prestigious subdivision....photo's of course will be included.....

talk with you tomorrow....

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Lily

Well done chasing those dinos off. :)
Great report... I can't beleive you snuck in an extra 10K mid-marathon training. You so totally rock.

I'm glad you didn't see the ty-rexes. I wonder, once you got the dino out of your shoes, how long did it take you to clean the shoes up? :) Good run.

Red Green LMAO, I haven't seen that show in a while. It usually comes on up here while I am playing bass at church and I never remember to set the vcr. I rarely catch a repeat.

I loved the post! good luck on your run tomorrow.

I love the Red Green show! Great job on your run. I wish you'd been along with me yesterday. We would have been about the same pace--other than all the potty stops.

That cat looks like a killer. What kinds of things does it hunt?
