I’ve been thinking of posting for months and then came to the realization that winter would be over by the time I got around to it. Turns out I was wrong. It is officially spring and has been for a bit now (at least according to the calendar), but winter hasn’t let go yet.
Rather than writing about my adventures since December, which would take at least 5,000 words, I shall summarize my most memorable moments since my last post in photos. I’ve had some epic moments this winter too. Perhaps I just attract epic adventure much like James Bond attracts gorgeous women. It’s more probable that it’s just a natural consequence of running in the middle of nowhere with wild animals (I’ve had about 3 adventures with wild caribou alone). One very memorable run involved a 95 lb golden retriever colliding into the side of my friends knee. Now I know what bones cracking sound like. She ended up with a compound fracture on her tibial plateau and will be a in a cast for 12 weeks. Lesson learned from this, be careful when running with dogs.
Okay, now onto the photos…
7 caribou encountered on this run
Okay, that’s enough photo enjoyment.
I have no races planned (except Emperor’s Challenge – if I can get in). My feelings towards races have evolved since my somewhat dysfunctional year and a half long relationship with Wolverine (recall my heel spur), but that’s an entirely separate post (or series of posts).
As I was closing this post, Kobi showed up at the door with a part of a white tail deer (it’s tail of all things). I suspect some larger predators had a meal at the expense of the poor deer. Life in the wild is harsh. See, I do live an exciting life.
Has spring sprung where you are or is that still up for debate?
Should I have let Kobi in with the body part?
Which photo is your favourite?
