Fo Shizzle my nizzle...I almost died on Saturday. No kidding I really saw my life pass before my eyes....
Saturday morning I had Scott drive me out of town so I could get my training run in. The terrain is just flat farms spread everywhere. As we were driving he casually said..."Aren't you scared of Dogs?" I quickly replied "No"! And then a few seconds later followed it with a, "well now I am!"
When we reached our target drop off I hopped out of the car and didn't think anything else about it. When Scott turned off the engine to the car I asked him what he was doing. He said, "oh, I'm just going to look over some business stuff and then I'll take off." I secretly was a little annoyed thinking that he was hanging around to watch and see if I really pushed myself on my run.
About 10 minutes later and 1 mile into my run I started getting chased by a dog. It barked a few times and I whistled at it and it immediately began to wag it's tail...Coast Clear. About 10 more minutes and 2 miles into my run I saw two more dogs and they didn't look so friendly. I crossed to the other side of the road hoping that they would chill out, but they just kept coming...fast and aggressive. I started to panic and then all of a sudden I noticed that my Knight In Shining Armor came to my rescue. Scott drove the car up to the dogs, honking the horn over and over and blocked them from being able to chase me. Thank Heaven's for Scott!
I can't tell you how grateful I am for a Husband that cares about me and was willing to just hang out, pretend that he was working on business and watch me run. If he hadn't been watching who knows what would have happened. Well at this point I probably should have got in the car and changed locations.
But no, I am stubborn so I kept running. About 1/2 a mile further down the road I saw three vicious dogs approaching me. These were the scariest of them all.
When I was on my mission I was chased by dogs quite a few times, but I was always confident that the Lord would protect me, since I was doing his work.
I definitely didn't feel that safety net on Saturday. I started to panic and I was terrified. I didn't know what to do. I started waving my arms for Scott and started running over to a big electric fence. I really didn't know what I was going to do. Luckily Scott got there, yet again, just in time.
Wow. So Scary! I just kept thinking about how my big round butt looked like Breakfast to these wild dogs. Ahhh!!!
Can I hear a...I like big butts and I cannot lie...my doggy brothers can't deny...
Okay, I'll stop there. Anyway, at this point I got in the car and had Scott drive me back into town to finish my run. I am still having anxiety. Not Fun!
