Running partners

Believe it or not I’m running again. I’m even training for a race. 10K, it’s a start. In fact, it may be the longest distance I race. I’ve been training for several months now and I’ve seen some interesting things just running through my humble neighborhood.

Take for instance, Thing 1 and Thing 2:

See, I was running so fast the black squirrel picture is fuzzy. I had never seen anything but grey squirrels before moving to DC. We’re very inclusive in the nation’s capital. I’m all about reducing the squirrel population around here, but these guys are kinda cute–and there’s only one white one and several black ones in the neighborhood.

      I used to think all squirrels were cute, but now they are just rats with bushy tails to me. I find it hard not to steer towards them when I’m driving. Ha!

  1. I’ve never seen a black squirrel before…it DOES look like a rat! I once ran over a young albino squirrel. I must say, I started laughing (because the whole “survival of the fittest” thing).

      I’m laughing that you laughed about running over a squirrel šŸ™‚ I don’t see the albino one very often. I’ve actually only seen him twice. The black ones are about once or twice a week.
