Poisonous things in my garage...

We'll just not talk about yesterday's workout that wasn't.
There was volleyball- but it didn't last long and I hardly moved ;).

There WAS this:
A salad concoction built for two.
That I ate all by myself.
Yum and healthy.
Go me!

Oh yeah- and THIS HAPPENED:
Yeah- that's a full on Black Widow spider.
About to chow down on a grasshopper.
In my garage.
(enlarge the picture- total red hourglass)   
(please don't judge this tiny glimpse of my filthy garage).

 I was not impressed.
I don't love spiders.
Especially poisonous ones in my garage.

So I had to squish a big ol' spider AND a giant twitching/dead grasshopper.
The aftermath was NOT pretty.
I will spare you that picture

On a more pleasant topic-

5.25 miles ran this morning!
The breathing is getting a little easier.

Love that I can run again.
Still no pain, so yay!

AAAAAAAAGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!
That is my reaction to seeing a black widow in your garage!
I'm so sorry that you found SUCH a terrible thing in your garage, and I'm so impressed with you for dealing with it, were you terrified?
Shudder...
Yay for 5.25 and no pain!

That made shivers go down my spine, I freaking hate spiders and even worse when they are in my territory. Nice job squishing it!

Great job on the run!
