A Snail’s Pace August 9, 2011

Last night was beautiful. A little chilly, but still perfect for a walk. I called up Erika and we laced up our sneakers for a 3 mile walk around the park. I am just so motivated lately and I’m so excited to be walking consistently again.

Little Sophie was an angel on our walk. She was just looking around, taking it all in. I can’t believe how big she is getting. She’s so observant and happy when she’s outside.

I had so much fun chatting with her mama. We always have great deep conversations. Sorry if I talk too much, Erika! hee hee.

This morning, I wanted to keep the momentum going, so I set out on a 2 mile walk before work. I listened to my NPR podcasts (man, I’m so far behind on them!)

Look who I saw along the way! A Snail! I think they come out in the morning after all the lawn sprinklers are finished. But where do they live during the day? where do snails come from anyways?

What have you seen out on your runs/walks lately? I always try to keep an eye out for fun stuff.

  1. I saw a snail on my run this morning! I almost stepped on it but caught myself before I did.

    I saw a skunk (!) a couple weeks ago! I normally run in the mornings, but had to squeeze in an evening run and was quite alarmed to have a skunk lumbering along – especially since I had to pass it to get home! I survived the incident. 🙂

    It’s been a weird summer, though – I was just thinking this morning that I’ve seen more snakes around this year than in the last 5 combined!

    We hiked up toward Mt Tallac and saw Fallen Leaf Lake and Lake Tahoe – and some chipmunks and rocks… and trees too! Lots of trees.

  4. I saw the same type of snail the other day on my walk home from the train station. I usually see tons of bunnies and deer when I’m out walking. I’m jealous that it’s chilly for you 🙂

      Yea, it’s been a weird summer out here! I wish I saw deer near my house! I miss “the woods”. City living is tough sometimes. 🙂
