Spring Has Sprung, the Grass has Ris', I Wonder Where My Bear Spray Is??

Well, the grass hasn't exactly risen but the bears are coming out of hibernation. The bear spray is back and has asssumed its' home on the side of my hydration pack. *Sigh.* My friends have also come out from hibernation!! Mike decided on wearing shorts and Steve decided on pajama bottoms on last nights run. What can I say? They are fashionable guys. Here are Mike and Steven in action on Wednesday night. It was great to get out for a run with the boys.

I made it out for 3 easy runs this week, and on tonights run, I finally felt like I'm getting my Mojo back. Phew. You know. The libido. The life force. The essence. The right stuff. What the French call a certain... I don't know what. But, Yeeeeah-baby-yeeah! My legs are back!

That Diablo reeeeally kicked my ass. The little time-out was good and necessary, but it's time to get back in the saddle! What's coming up next? So many ideas....

Hey Sunshine Girl, thanks for the nice comment. Can't wait to read thru your blog when I have more time! Let me know when you wanna go to the Channel Islands - heehee!

Danni said...

I know, I don't want to carry bear spray either!

Diablo kicked my ass too so I'm not sure whether to run long this weekend. Tell me what to do oh wise one!

Leslie said...

Go find yourself a pretty place with some nice singletrack and a big hill and go for the all day WALK with running breaks! Take 'yer dog, 'yer tunes and 'yer "I'm out here all day" attitude enjoy!

It's always good to do a bit of a 'reset' after a big, tough race. Glad to hear you have your mojo back!

Leslie said...

Yeah, baby, YEAH!

Meghan said...

You did not say that you have your libido back, did you? Really, lady, I tell you!

I've got an idea for you!


Doone said...

I'm glad we weren't the only ones to have our butts kicked by Diablo - I am just thankful that I feel good enough to run this weekend given the forecast for spring weather - Yeah! I really like your idea of single track, my dog and a walk with running breaks

Gretchen said...

Yay, it's spring!! Yep, I saw my first bear of the season out on trail yesterday. Fortunately we don't have grizzlies, so I don't have to carry spray. That would suck. But I love seeing the bears.They're beautiful.

Leslie said...

Megs, hullllo? Austen Powers? She Spy Who Shagged Me? The Best Movie Ever?!?

I was trying to compare my legs being gone to Austen's Mojo being stolen...but somehow you now think that I'm horny.

P.S. I love that word.
H-O-R-N-Y. It has what the french call a certain...
I don't know what....!!

Hi Doone! I think we need a little Lake Minnewanka singletrack to get us back in the saddle!

Howdy Gretchen. Oooo! I love to see the bears, too. They are so amazing. I just like to see them from the luxury of my car!

....and finally, welcome to Sue!

Phil said...

Keep that bear spray close by...lots of critters out there these days!

Good seeing you on the trail today - not sure if you had recognized me in my mtn bike get-up...

Let's hook up for a run soon...I'm keen to get out for something longish!

BBQ at my place tonight (now)in case you get this today (May 2nd).

I thought you used up all your bear spray on that mad mamma elk last year! Is there a little left in the can?

Pajama bottoms for running? Trend setter or just lagging on the laundry?

Good to hear that your legs are feeling better. It's nice to feel like you have some spring back in them after a long hard run like Diablo.

Hone said...

Recovery is the worst part of racing. Glad you back on it.

Have fun out there and become dinner for some old bear.

Gary Robbins said...

'Our Friends' are back out in full force. Seen four bears in the last week alone! As long as they ain't Griz I'm generally ok with sharing the trails with them...I guess they get right of way though:)
