Quick source of motivation today

So today on my 30 mile ride, I was just cruising along enjoying the nice weather..when out of nowhere a dog runs out into the road from the left side and acted like it wanted to chase me. Scared the buhjeezes out of me..and I got the chance to see how well I can sprint Then like not even a half mile down the road same thing happens only from the right side of the road...but this time I saw the dog at the house..I still got the hell away as fast as I could.

Maybe the dogs were trying to tell me I need to go faster

on my vacation at the top of this nasty but short climb there was a huge dog that would chase me everyday on my vacation. the first time it scared the crap out of me. nothing like sprinting with what you dont have after a climb that killed you in the first place. turned out the dog didnt seem to want to bite me but it sure loved to chase me not that i wanted to stop and find out.
