I had one of those runs where amazingly everything was great... a bit like driving and all the lights are green:
No dogs jumped up ( normally at least 2 do... I have a fear of dogs since being bitten by one)
The one dog that ran towards me was grabbed by its owner ( who looked like the queen!!) and she apologised!!!
When I was running up the second to last hill I passed a mums and buggies brigade- normally they grimace at me but today one of them said to me, 'go girl..... respect,' .... I was very very happy and I did my best to look all calm and in control ( I was really tired at this point and v sweaty!!)
Lastly- I actually felt really strong going up the hills... my training must finally be paying off!!!!
I love running in the woods, I feel so blessed that I can,
