Let's be clear, I'd be a Gryffindor not Slytherin

3.6 ish miles approximately 11:00 pace

Why am I estimating mileage and pace? Because my Garmin was being a punk. It searched for satellites for so freaking long that it tried to go into power save. You've gotta be kidding me. After about 11 years I finally just said forget it and took off. It quit being a d-bag at some point.

About 10 minutes later, I notice something stretched across the trail. A big fat snake. I tossed a few rocks at it to get it to scoot along. Dummy me didn't think about the fact that I would have to come right back through there.

So the whole way back I was freaking out that I was gonna get bit by a snake. You'd think it would've increased my pace. You'd think.


  1. hahaha. okay. you are hilarious. i freaking hate when my garmin is all wack like that. drives me up a wall!!!!! and snakes. NO THANKS. a couple weeks ago i was running a trail and i walk up behind this guy that looks like he is holding a leash with an animal attached. NO...he was dangling a SNAKE as long as his body. Who picks those things up???? duhhhhhhh.

    awesome run girl. amazing. i would have been terrified to even run back. you are brave.
