Not So Bad

Okay, so in my last post I was really dogging on the hills surrounding our house.  Yeah, they can be a pain in the butt, literally. As I was out running yesterday, I decided that I wasn't really being fair because for all the said butt kicking they do, I love them and cannot imagine running anywhere else.  So, I took some pictures for you.  Life in the foothills is an adventure and definitely breathtaking.

......and on each and every run, I always am greeted by the wildlife.  This deer was munching brush oak on the side of our house.  He didn't mind that I snapped his picture just as long as he could continue decimating my trees. Now, luckily, this is the only kind of wildlife I have encountered out on a run.  On Monday we received a call from the kid's school.  Some rather large animals, such as bears, mountain lions and bobcats had been spotted on or near school grounds.  Funny, I just ran past there yesterday.

Have a great Wednesday!
p.s. The kids had another cross country meet yesterday afternoon and they all did great.  Paige ran her little heiny off and finished ninth in a sea of about 40 kindergarten girls.  Yah!!!!!

These are such pretty pics! That deer is huge! Good job on the running! I did a half yesterday for a training run and ran my best time - 2:05. Can't believe Chicago is now less than two weeks away!!!
