Today was our last long run before Chicago – now the taper begins, and I cannot tell you how excited I am to taper. Went into the run today not really wanting to run – but we did it – slow and not as far as we wanted – but, the we got enough time on the road – my hips and knees were really achy during the entire run. It’s been a tough monster month.
Early into our run this morning a turkey flew down and startled us as it landed very close to us, too close. Turkeys are big. I for the first time – saw a turkey fly. I seriously did not know that turkeys could fly – I assumed they grew on farms somewhere and just got fat all day – naive I am. Ended up seeing about 6 or 7 turkeys waddling around our course – in the midst of a big city no less . . . first time for everything I guess.
