February 28th (Sunday): 15 miles (1:41:04) in SHORTS AND A T-SHIRT. Beautiful afternoon run around the neighborhoods of Leominster (See Strava data at the bottom of post). I ran down a side road (ended being a dead end) and had a close encounter with two dogs. It was to a point where I had to wait for the owner to exit his house to calm the dogs down. One turned out to be friendly. I was able to pet it. The other not so much. Made it out with all my limbs. Back to help put the finishing touches (2nd coat on trims and hardware) on the nursery for my future niece/nephew! Drove home at a decent hour and witnessed a spectacular sunset.
