Wild animals and Running update

Bobcat staring down two deer

Above is a picture of a bobcat that was hanging out behind our house. It was a bit of a shock since I've only seen them at a distance or fleeing away. After a few moments we discovered it was staring at two deer also perched on the rocks. Click on the pictures for a better view.
Tense standoff
This standoff continued for a few minutes until the deer took off. We have seen many interesting animals in the backyard this year. Its great to just watch....like having our own personal zoo.

Running
Ran 13.2 miles on Saturday and 4 miles this morning. Slowly getting better. Now I will step up the frequency and distance to prepare for spring time races. The weather is improving with temps hovering in the low 30s'. With the extra morning light its' becoming fun again.
