Sandsquinch sightings – 1:31:12December 4th, 2005
The rare Sandsquinch was spotted this morning on the trails around Thetis Lake. Pan and I were tracking the Sandsquinch on the trails for awhile and noticed that he likes to take the occasional shortcut : )
Getting ready to go:
Had a good turnout this morning, 11 of us. It was a great day to be out on the trails, the weather was amazing, we even had a little sun shine on us near the finish of the run. There was still some snow left up along the power lines and a few of us were doing the slippy slidy going down the trail. The power line trail is getting pretty overgrown, lots of blackberry bushes which can make running kinda hazardous. I got snagged a few times and had some leaks on my legs. My ankle felt great, I had taped it up this morning and tried to run cautiously on the single track and push on the more open stuff. The tape gave it that little extra support that it needed and me the confidence to push it a bit. I really enjoyed the run today!!
The Sandsquinch was spotted again at Brannigans where a few of us went for breakfast after the run. We were joined by Diva who had gone to Elk/Beaver this morning to run with Shan.
My afternoon was spent at the laundry mat, as wonderful as T is she sure goes through a lot of clothes : ) I can’t wait till she’s old enough to do her own laundry… Stopped by the video store on the way home and picked up another movie, it’s going to be a Zombie night with “Land of the Dead”.
Tomorrow will be a Youth Centre night for T and hopefully a 50+ minute run for me.
