It's a trail????

I thought this was a paved trail here in Lawrence, MA.  JFYI...it isn't.  It's a single track by the river with roots and trees and poison ivy (or oak) I'm sure.  I did see a deer, and thankfully it didn't try to eat my eyes.  Those deer are vicious...

So...I went out way too fast and had to take a breather a couple of times.  I definitely won't be doing this path for my five miler (there's another paved path that's about a mile in length around here.), but I am glad that I did it for this run.  I just wish I hadn't tried to do it so fast.

There are few things a deer enjoys more than a good eyeball. That's why when I run in the woods I always wear sports goggles.

But what do you do about all the raccoon babies that like to mug runners for their sports goggles?
