This morning was an 8 mile recovery run. Slow and easy, 10 minute miles. Topaz did more waiting for me than usual. I was tired from yesterday's hills but wanted to get in a slow run.
The Sandhill Cranes were crazy today. I saw three different pairs, all squeaking and squawking at each other and then one pair was bouncing off of the ground, jumping into the air, then landing on the grass. As one landed, the other would jump. Mating ritual? I don't know. They make the oddest noises. They screech. They are nervous nellies, bobbing their heads up and down, like we are even going to make a bee line for them.
We went to the Dome to watch the Twin play today. Sure was glad to get the only run during the whole game! Man, S L O W game, but at least we came out ahead. GO TWINS!
