We do have the typical seasonal assortment of creeps crawling out of their hidey holes. This week's assortment includes a convicted sex offender who's been approaching children and is reported to have lollipops and rope in his backseat (note to self: do not run on the Big Dry Creek trail through that area this weekend), a different report of a freak in a car talking to children on their way to school in Denver, and the flashing reports at my downtown Denver campus. Oddly, it's it's a completely different guy that in past years, the previous offender having been arrested after years of not being caught.
sparkle--hope your doggie recovers soon. I too wonder if you could wrap her paws with some gauze, or whether that might make it worse. Also, hope you're able to get the space and time you need for the next few days.
RM-- for all of you.
kerc--your tube is on its way. And if it looks like there was melted chocolate on it, um, yeah, there was. A certain 3yo had a Z-bar and hadn't wiped her hands and somehow got hold of it.
RR: 6 hot miles with tjsmama, who rocked the run. We averaged a 10:30 pace which was crazy considering that it was in the 80s and she'd already run 5 miles and I was pushing a jogger. It was so ridiculously hot. And my caffeine levels had dropped, so by the end I was a little dazed and not my usual energetic, let's go! self. I was pretty much like "ok, we're running. ok, we're stopping. boy it's hot." Tjsmama would say "I don't want to run anymore" and I'd think "me neither!" I'll make sure to caffeinate better before we run together next time, I promise!
NRR: school choir started this morning. Getting out of the house by 7:15 is painful in this house and 7:30 am is too early for sightreading, really. Oh well.
