So, my runs on Sunday and yesterday both were accompanied by some really pretty 'flies. I swear the same large Blue dragonfly was pacing me on my 3 miler, and then he got distracted by this stunning black & white butterfly and ditched me. Come on, dude. Bro's before ho's right? But in all honesty, it was neat running with a dragonfly for a good 1/2 mile. I thought for sure he'd get tired of my slow/steady pace and just leave me, but he was a good little bug. If only I had snapped a pic of him...
Then yesterday I saw a red dragonfly and thought it was Blue's hottie older sister. Turns out she was, and had no interest in running with her little bro's prego human pal. Geez. Older sisters. ;)
Tomorrow I leave for the gorgeous East Coast and I seriously CAN'T contain my excitement!!! I have a race on Saturday that is the exact same race I first ran back when I was 11 with my Uncle Doug. This time though, I'm going to be slower and Uncle Doug is going to actually race it. Woo hoo! Go Coach Fish!!
Happy to be at my "second home" in MA last November.
