Ran easy. The sun took its tool in a shirtless run. A three-inch garter snake tried nipping my heel. Monarchs were all around, at least more than usual. In all, an uneventful run.

Did you outrun the snakes? Just teasing you...

One live snake - I doubled back to see what kind it was. Always fascinated by them as a kid. Close to the 0.5 mile marker, just over the first hill.

One dead snake - Met his maker thanks to a bicycle. Just before I noticed the skunk.

One resident skunk - Never saw, but his presence was known near the 2.5 or 3.0 mile marker.

One dead hedgehog - Bike or bird took him out? I could not tell. He was laying close to the bridge, near the three mile marker, I think.

One wasp - Bumped into me close to the 4.5 mile marker. Freaked me out.

Birds - Sandpipers, redwing blackbirds, a red-tailed hawk, a gold finch, and a cardinal.
