This week had a bit of a break in the humidity. I think better weather combined with busting out the new shoes made for a better running week. I actually have energy to get through the day! I didn't cut any of my loosely planned runs short which is always a good feeling.
Progress on the Muttmobile is being made as well. We have insurance on the thing after somewhat of a debacle with the insurance company that led to the owner personally bringing papers over to the house for me to sign. They did not want to 'inconvenience' us anymore by making me come into their office - embarrassing. Crates were ordered and arrived yesterday. We fiddled last night and were able to get all of them in and the layout configured. The Muttmobile will be able to take 9 medium and large dogs and we can probably squeeze in a couple more with remove-able crates. There's still some work to create all the supports and attachments necessary which hopefully will be finished this weekend.
The break in the humidity reminded me that I haven't complained about one of the biggest annoyances I face in summer running. It's not the heat and humidity. It's yard sales. Does anyone else encounter this issue? Yard sale patrons are probably the worst drivers on the planet. They'll park their car in the middle of a busy street just to see what old mattress someone is trying to sell. They certainly do not pay attention when they are driving and it's terrible to get around them when they seem to be coming from every direction.
If that's not enough randomness for a post, I'll leave with a link to the latest post on the Miles and Mutts blog. One of the dogs that's been running was adopted by one of the volunteer runners this week...knowing they get adopted is one thing, knowing what type of home they go to is even more exciting!
This one is still looking for a home but she's become one of my favorites...hoping someone will fall in love with her soon.
Besides yard sales, what other annoyances are there with running in sub-divisions? You often hear people talk about running in the city, what about all of us living in country or suburbs!
