I feel like I am jinxing myself here, but I am going to say it anyway: I *might* make it home in the next few days. I know, exciting stuff.
Last night as I was getting ready for my run, I happened to glance outside and saw a bunch of strange birds milling around. Apparently they were Turkey Vultures, which I had never seen before. I grabbed my small camera and ran outside to get some pictures before the light faded.
For a bunch of vultures, these guys seemed pretty cowardly. Every time I got close they would fly into the trees. I thought they would have been a little braver than that.
After my unsuccessful vulture stalking, I went for my run. It was good but not great, the hills were a little too much for me last night. Speaking of which, time to investigate how hilly the 6k course will be!
