Thanks for all the response about carbs, your opinions have been helpful. I also enjoyed the comment about running barefoot, I believe I laughed out loud.
I would like to comment on the dog situation which obviously bothers many people. As a dog owner, dogs causing problems in parks concerns me. The inevitable result will be to close the park to dogs. I live within 1/4 of Brown Deer park, where dogs are not allowed. (although hundreds break this well-posted rule daily) I don’t know the history, but I have a suspicion that it stems from owners failing to control their dogs and the county not wanting to be liable for any problems. Too bad.
