Lisa: Pre-training: Week 7, Days 3 & 4

On Saturday, Sarah and I ran at Liberty Park. We got about 2 1/4 times around the park, which makes 2.8 miles. Now that we are really starting to run, we are starting to see photographic evidence of the phenomenon my "friends" like to refer to as "tomato face."

Yesterday, Marci and I ran on the killer hills of Sugarhouse Park. We went exactly twice around the loop in our 40 minutes, which is 2.8 miles (woot woot!). At the end of our run we were right behind this couple walking two dogs. Almost immediately after passing this sign...

...admonishing dog owners to clean up after their pets, the bigger of the two dogs pulled over for a dump. The man just waited until the dog was finished, and then moved on. No picking up of the crap was even considered! If you recognize this couple, please ask them to be more civically minded. Bags are even provided in the dispenser below the sign!

I wanted to say something to you about the dog incident but I did not want the people to hear me. Im glad I was not the only one disgusted by this.

I wanted to say something to you, too, but they never got far enough away! If you're wondering why I was stopped by the side of the road after we ran, it's because I was taking this stealth photo.

So, on the day that I ran alone at Liberty Park (home of my lost drivers license... DURRRRRRRRR!), I saw a woman using park-provided bags for her dog's poo. I almost took a picture with my camera phone, just to prove that there are good, responsible pet owners out there. But I was afraid of being too obvious. Still. Lady with the long blond hair and the very fluffy dog? Good on you!
