day alone.....

Andrew and I both ended up doing our own things yesterday. He stayed around the trailer and read his new book....... a biography on Steve Jobs (can't wait to read it myself).

I used my day for exploring (and running).

Found a nice trail.

I was a little nervous because I didn't have any bear spray (was told that there were still some active black bear).

So I sang out loud and made as much noise as possible.

The trail was only about a mile long, so I headed off onto highway 288 (not as busy as most).

There wasn't a shoulder to run on. Had to jump off into ditch areas when cars came around. Sometimes I get really caught up in the scenery and I don't notice cars........... was startled a couple times.

Note to self: Must work on concentration skills.

I ended up covering a bit over 12 miles (felt good). Here in Northern Georgia, the roads seem to go uphill FOREVER. Too bad I am not training for anything....... cause I could be in awesome shape.

Spotted more horses......

After dinner, I played around with my photographs. I am enjoying my new hobby.

That's all for now.

Gotta run.

What is bear spray?

Unknown said...

Yup..... bears. I believe bear spray is the same as pepper spray.

Really one's best bet is to be in a group, and not be the slowest ;-) lol

I have a canister of bear spray for our hikes in the White Mountains. And pepper spray while running. yep, a little paranoid :)

I can see why you might not be able concentrate on where you're running - the scenery you share w/ us is gorgeous :)

Bear spray is real?? I know me -- I'd be WANTING to see bears in the wild. Sounds like a lovely place to run!

You picture stories are awesome. I've been looking for bear spray, too, because I've run to black bears here. I think it would make me feel a bit more secure.
