got up around 7 this morning so i could squeeze in a run before i go to the city. have to pretend i understand a bunch of stuff for 4 hours on optimum weight loss strategies. and it's so nice out! run was good except for this big furry rat-bastard of a dog that insisted on steam-rolling me, jumping at me and then chasing me. i tried swatting at it, but that made it worse. really impressed when the owners mumbled a 'sorry' and still couldn't manage to get control of this stoopid animal. stoopid dog owners!
