It is not every day you run by a Bike Cop staring down the barrel of his gun at a Raccoon. Today's long run was anything but normal. I came up on the masked varmint along with 2 cyclists. The bike cop pedaled up behind us and asked that we block off the trail from any other exercise enthusiasts. I kept running, not interested in sticking around for what was to come. 30 seconds later the cop put 3 bullets into the raccoon, ending the stand off, and returning the trail to it's rightful owners. Alpharetta cops seldom use their guns, so this was probably the highlight of that bike cops career.
The run, on the other hand, was great. I kept a very easy pace and thought that I was around 8 minutes per mile. I was gauging that pace on my effort level. I really was not working to hard to make this run happen. After I finished up and calculated the pace, it was closer to 7:37 per mile. I don't know how I couldn't tell the 23 second difference in the pace. I am just happy it felt so good!
