Contemplating that we run in horrid situations – for instance, yesterday the temperature was 75 levels, with the dew level at 74 and humidity at 98%, which implies that you are mainly attempting to outrun being drowned in sweat – we’re nonetheless working, so I am giving myself and my fellow Renegades a gold star for that. I am certain you guys are bored with studying about how gross working is in the course of the scorching Texas months, and you understand what? I am bored with it too. So I will attempt to not point out climate till we get a cool entrance – which could not be till finish of October – and you’ll simply assume that I am attempting to not die of sweat and warmth.
That stated, I’ve been having fun with working extra currently. Do not get me mistaken, it is nonetheless extremely taxing in comparison with chilly climate working, however it’s been good. We found a brand new highway behind the subdivision behind my subdivision – so is that three levels of subdivision? – which has been enjoyable to run on. The primary time we ran it, it was nonetheless fairly darkish and issues are scarier at nighttime than when it is gentle, that is a recognized reality. As we ran, up forward there was a low space that had a layer of fog, and I noticed a big canine, so naturally I ended to warn Jeff and Diane as a result of the very last thing you need is to run up on a big canine at nighttime, proper? Properly it seems it wasn’t a canine however relatively a child cow. And a mama cow, and one other mama and child cow. BABY COWS ARE THE SAME SIZE AS A LARGE DOG AND I STAND BY MY WARNING. Jeff and Diane instantly realized that the big canine was a cow and I nonetheless have not heard the tip of it, however I used to be simply attempting to guard my working buddies!
Anyway, we have run the cowdog route a pair extra instances however have not come throughout any cows masquerading as massive canines, which is nice. You’ll be able to guess that I am looking out, although!
Ultimately we adjourned to Blue Baker, the place we found that somebody had taken the loaf of ciabatta bread that our baker had set out for us! Who does that – simply take a loaf of bread off of a desk? They knew they hadn’t paid for it. That was odd. The bakers instructed us what had occurred and located a few smaller loaves for us which was tremendous good and significantly, we do not go there simply because they’ve a deal with ready for us, however they do deal with us very nicely, I’ll say.
