Run Fast and Carry A Big Stick

Things I learned on last evening’s trail run:

1)  An emergency pair of gloves should be a staple in any gym bag for when it’s unexpectedly 50 degrees and windy.

2)  Running with your hands in your armpits for warmth makes trail running a bit more precarious.

3)  Hands can remain numb for 9 miles (or aproximately an hour and a half) and still regain feeling without medical attention.

4)  Wild  Agressive off-leash dogs are not deterred by cold weather.

5)  Teddy Rosesvelt may not have been a runner, but he was on to somthing with his “big stick” philosophy.

6)  Those dogs didn’t stand a chance.

    Sounds like a dog OWNER needs to be bashed in the head with a big stick for having off-leash dogs on a running trail!
