#100happydays Day 93 An eventful 30k

 

Yesterday I wrote of the important of planning your running route. We set our goal – 30K – and planned our route and even started out at the designated time.

Quiet roads.

Quiet roads.

 

The weather was great as we cruised along our favorite road. Feeling pretty good we started to run over the new overpass that is almost finished being built. Humm, apparently that wasn’t a good idea, (but it was last week). This week we were greeted by a fellow in a truck who told us not to run on the new overpass yet and that he would “escort” us over the bridge but that we shouldn’t come back that way. Oh oh, we might have to re-think our route.

Running along the back roads can be so relaxing, very few cars were out this morning and we only pass one peloton of cyclists. The grapes were hanging from the vines, the jewel weeds were in bloom and the soybean fields looked lush.

We just passed onto the 4 concession road when we heard a large vehicle coming up behind us. The road was a little narrow at that point. As we turned to see what was coming up on us, we were a little surprised to see a large farm tractor with duel back wheels pulling a double liquid manure spreader. Wow, we had to step off the road to let it pass. Then the smell hit us! It was so strong you could taste it! GROSS! This is when we decided to not follow our planned route. We made the decision to turn back to the corner and run north instead of following behind the smelliest thing out there.

This is what we ran away from, what a smell!

This is what we ran away from, what a smell!

From there on we use the Garmin to help us decide our alternate route, 15k out and then we figured out how to get back while avoiding the overpass.

We were there and now we are here

We were there and now we are here

It was a beautiful day for a run. The weather was a little overcast, and the temperature was on the cool side but the rain held off until we were home eating great omelets whipped up by Glenis’s husband!

Another thing to remember about planning your route – be adaptable.
