Good Friday - Short Run Cut Short
So after getting myself into a bit of a mess on the bike, I decided not to go for a particularly long run - just an extended cool-down of about four miles. All was well until just after the turnaround, when I was dragged back to reality by a blast from a car horn.
Looking around, there was a large dog wondering among the busy bank holiday traffic. So I stopped the clock, walked over & grabbed it by the collar. Reading its name tag, I borrowed someone else’s phone to call its owner. Unfortunately, the number listed was her home number, and the chances were that she’d been walking her dog who’d got spooked by the noise from the fun fair. So I left a message, and using my fuel belt as a lead, walked the dog back to our house.
An hour later, the owner called & came to collect her beloved pooch from our back yard.
Anyway. That’s my excuse for not running as far as I’d intended.
