The weather was a bit cooler again, so it was great for an evening run! There were a lot of people out walking, many of them with their dogs. Dogs sure seem to get excited when they see someone run past them! Many of them were yapping away as I ran by and a couple dogs pulled against their leashes in an attempt to run after me!
In the middle of mile 2, I ran by the couple who had found the parakeet the other day. They were walking along so I slowed down for a second and asked, “Hey, did you take the bird home?”
“Yeah,” they said.
“We found a home a for it,” the woman continued.
“That’s great!” I replied and continued on my way. I passed them two more times during my run and gave them a small wave each time (as I do for most people I pass while running).
I started to get a little cramping in my right side at the beginning of mile 3 (maybe I shouldn’t have eaten dinner before running). I slowed to a walk for a couple of minutes and drank some water. The cramping went away and I resumed my workout.
