A Frogalypse

With the torrential downpours and thunderstorms over the past couple of days, I haven’t run since Tuesday.  When no rain clouds appeared this morning, I ran out the door for a 4 mile run.

 

Today’s run was gross.  Let me rephrase that.  The run was good, but the roads were disgusting.  I have never seen so many squashed frogs.  I suppose the rain confused them or perhaps the rains gave them the courage to explore beyond the cypress swamps, but the results looked like an amphibian apocalypse or what I’m calling “A Frogalypse”.  With visions of froggie guts hopping into my head, my college biology class came back to haunt me. 

 

I also spotted a flattened armadillo, which became one with the rode after being continuously run over and a few squashed snakes.  Yuck. 

 

Oh, the humanity!

 

I’ll try my best to shake off the horrible images that still haunt me to share my stats with you.

 

Tuesday- 3 miles

Time 29:31

Pace 9:50

Time 38:16

***Disclaimer: No amphibians were harmed in the making of this post.  All amphibians sited were already dead.  Although I did not stop to inspect the flattened amphibians to determine if the creatures in question were frogs or toads, “frogs” were merely selected for the sole purpose to tell a humorous tale and lack any real scientific evidence to make such a classification.***
