Went out to run early. Was going to try a 3 loop route that should be 4 miles but has fewer hills. Half way through the first loop a dog came after me. I faced off with it and then walk away backwards before starting to run again. I changed the course and went shorter because I was running late. The dog only barked once and then was right on me so it was kind of weird. I will try that course in daylight next time I try it. There are not many homes in this loop compared to regular neighborhoods. I ran pretty slow although it was a little lighter than it has been. 22:50. When it is cold and dark I have been running very slow.
