|16 Miler! Done with a smile!|
Well, today will have to go down as a success! She completed the 16 miles with hardly a complaint. I'm sure there were a number of reasons that contributed to the success. One: We drove to Davenport for the long run. A long 16 mile scenic run along the Mississippi helps distract the mind from the pain alerts your rusty legs are putting out.
|Along the Mississippi|
|Lots of HUGE US flags.|
And finally, She gets to run with me. And doesn't that make it all worth it? I mean, I'm kind of a big deal.
|Bald Eagle. Not the best Zoom.|
|Watch for Goose Crossing.|
In addition to the many many shots of Cheryl, I was able to get pictures of an eagle. ( he is a lot closer than this picture suggests.) And some Geese. There were tons of Geese, but it was the ones that Refused to move as Cheryl trotted by that were the ones I was interested in.
|Faster than a Train?|
Most of the water was open, but there are a few places still covered with ice. The temps hovered around 32-40 with sun. The wind was cool and gentle....pleasant conditions for a long run. She did not even have to wear her outer jacket.
