Yesterday for the first time since Christmas, I took Sadie and ran around the Silver Lake and Ivanhoe Reservoirs. A nice 3 mile run, plus a hilly 1.5 mile walk there and back, we have done many times in the past few months. A run that usually for the part along Silver Lake Blvd, makes me fearful that Sadie will get run over by the speeding on coming traffic when she freaks out about a big dog (or let's be honest, little dog) coming towards her. So, usually that part of the run isn't so relaxing for me and as it is the last part, I'm usually tired. The combination is suboptimal. Well, yesterday, when I made the turn above the dog park, I discovered that the jogging path is now complete. It is a nice little sandy trail with a low wall that keeps Sadie from jutting out in front of traffic. Yeah! The simple things that make me happy.
Sadie frolicked, I ran, it was a lovely way to begin my Sunday. Thanks City of LA
