I’ve started running again with the hopes (plan?) of completing the Barcelona half marathon in February. Mostly I run in circles in the Parc de la Ciutadella which is very close to where we live. Today I ran past/under a peacock! There’s a zoo on the edge of the park and the fence lines the edge of my route. What I first thought was a tree hanging over the fence turned out to be the peacock’s tail feathers. Sadly the tail wasn’t fanned out but the bird looked quite stunning none the less. It made me wonder why the peacock stays in the zoo if it can make it to the top of the fence?
I guess now that I’ve publicly announced my intention to run the half marathon I will actually have to do it. Eek.
