Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.
I decided to take Rocky with me today and do an easy 5 miles around Quarry lakes/ Alameda trail. We saw our friend and his dog Caesar (don't know the mans name) We found out Caesar was attacked on the creek trail by a Pit Bull that was just adopted by a couple so they didn't know much about the dog. The dog grabbed Caesar who weighs maybe 5 pounds and drug him down to the creek the owner of the pit really saved Caesars life that is what Caesars owner told me. He had to fight his dog off to save little Caesar. Caesar has about 25 stitches along his neck. He is a very lucky dog.
Rocky and I were very happy that our friend survived.
The owner really didn't do anything wrong, Caesars owner said. The guy bent down to pick up poop and the dog got loose from his wrist. They had no idea that the dog was aggressive. Very scary.
Today we did 5 miles out on the trail we had so much fun. It was beautiful out. Tomorrow I will drop my supplies in Sunol and rest up for Saturday 100 mile run.
I will post my cell number tomorrow for those who want to text me during the run. I will need all the positive encouragement I can get. This run is tough and is very much a mental challenge and physical too.
Good luck to all the Ohlone runners this weekend and everyone else racing this weekend.
