I started off at 7:30 Saturday morning with my spider webbing stick, of course. That's right. A stick. For knocking down spider webs, so I don't cry all the way down the trail. I ran with it for a couple miles before I realized that runners had been through and there weren't many webs left.
Tree down. Managed to make it under without going off the trail. I try to avoid going off the trail at Clinton. It's tick central.
Snail! Can you tell I was slacking yet? I promise I did some running.
Something really disgusting growing on a tree. No idea what it was. Looked like there was a cocoon stuck to it though.
This little puddle was a chest deep water crossing last May when I ran the Hawk 50.
This trail used to go somewhere. Now it just goes into the lake. There's been quite a bit of erosion on the north shore of Clinton.
Went to eat at our favorite breakfast place. Juko gets some good pets from daddy.
Roxy poses for me. What a pretty face!
A baby bunny on my way downtown.
Run #1. Ran at the River Trails. The poison ivy is INTENSE out there! So is Nick's beard. Never came home with a tick from the river though.
Snake! Sorry didn't get a shot of his/her whole body. He was shy. Also, I saw a LIVE mole for the first time, but he burrowed into the ground before I could get a pic. He was a cutie.
Second run. Snake skin. Always something interesting to see. That's why trail running rocks.
