Today my family decided to run our mile for the day on a new trail. It would have been nice except there were a lot of people and they didn’t all practice social distancing. It was nice weather, except I hate running alone on trails. My mom and sister decided to hike instead so I tried taking our dog. She gets so scared sometimes of the tiniest sounds so she kept stopping. It was kind of annoying, but eventually we made it to a mile. The trail we were on intercepted a dirt road, as we crossed the road we saw some people in the woods. My mom said she thought they might have been picking mushrooms. There is this bridge going over a small stream at the entrance of this trail that we had to cross which isn’t a big deal. Except when we got there this family of maybe five people, I wasn’t exactly sure, were by the bridge. They had little kids that were running around, so we waited until they went down to the water. We decided to just cross the bridge because we wanted to get home. Well, these people’s dog ran up to us and at our dog! Now, our dog isn’t aggressive or anything but you could tell she didn’t like it. They just stared at each other really close. I thought the other dog might attack! The guy with the family ran right up to us and got very close to get the dog. It was just really scary.
