Lowes Creek is a great trail system near our home. I typically don't go running here by myself, but it was such a beautiful day, I just could not resist. My husband gave me a disapproving, "Well, be careful." when I left. I think he was more worried about me getting lost, which I tend to do on these trails. But today, I did not get lost. That is because I cut my run short after getting bitten by a dog! I came around a corner and to a man walking two dogs. The trails are narrow, it was hard to get far enough away. Even though the dogs were on leashes, one jumped up and took a quick nip at my thigh. Lucky for me, I had my key fob in that thigh pocket and it took most of the bite. The dog did break the skin, and gave me a nice bruise though. I talked with the owner and made sure the dog had all his shots. I am going to take this as a small lesson about dogs and know that I need to be more careful. Oh, and I probably will not trail run here alone, but I will still snowshoe these trails!
