About a dozen people turned out for today's run. Michele, the ORC President, made an appearance and Dave arrived decked out in a running shirt festooned with various quips and comments about dogs.
Michele and I had a conversation in which she quoted Jon Hughes (the founder of our group) which we both seem to interpret as supporting our opposite views on running dogs as part of the group. Jon opined correctly that the Sunday run is not owned by any group. I thought that was the argument I was making about excluding dogs. Michele, on the other hand, takes the position that the ORC is within its rights to run dogs.
The good news is that you will not hear another word from me about dogs for the next several weeks in the hope that logic and good intentions will prevail.
Dave and I both ended up packing it in because of injury. After I turned back, I had the good fortune of visiting with Susan Paul, friend Stacy and Barbara.

Chris was absent this weekend as he and wife Cindy are celebrating their wedding anniversary. (26th, I believe) Congratulations!!
