Running in the Woods in Winter

Running is a good set-up for a strong cycling season.

can really upset my stomach.  

 

There are some downsides.   You can trip and fall.   You can turn an ankle.   In the summer, you can get bit by bugs.   You can get lost.   You can lose your dog.   All these things have happened to us and will all happen again.   I am on my third dog since Charles and I began running together.  Will ought to last six to eight more years easily.   He is a star runner capable of major jaunts that inspire me to keep trotting after him.   I need to stay in good shape to keep up with him even if I do just a quarter of his distance.   I don?t tell Will, but I am planning to get a dog or two after he is gone.  As far and Charles goes, I plan on keeping him as a trail running partner as long as he will tolerate me.   I bet that will last for the next twenty years.
