Today, I enjoyed a lovely morning bike ride under sunny blue skies. As I was returning towards home, I ran into a wall o' people and pooches!
I learned that today was the annual Doggie Dash 5k. I thought it was actually kinda nice to see so many people out enjoying the morning and raising some money for the charity. A few other bicyclists looked to be grumbling at the inconvenience. To that I say, "get over it!".
It was an out-and-back "race", so the canine horde only took up about a mile and a half of the pathway. Most were pretty considerate of the others out recreating like myself. I did almost get taken out by a Great Dane who decided to explore the area near a water station. That's not a collision I would've won.
In other news of people with more exciting lives than myself, Wolfgang just returned from a fun trip to Europe. One of his friends was invited to present a paper at a conference in Paris, so Wolfgang and the friend's brother tagged along.
He sent this "obligatory" pic
|peanut butter and jealous!|
I haven't actually seen him since he returned late last night. He did spend that final 48 hours of the trip dealing with flight delays and cancellations, so not all of his texts were of the sort to be envious... but most were.
Have I ever mentioned that I don't even own a passport?
