Beautiful morning for a run! Started out cold, but I stripped down to my tank top on the way back. I love running this time of year. We saw a GReat Blue Heron flying overhead...beautiful!

Had a beautiful walk around N. Everett with Roy. His poor knees are so bad it was a slow walk. I sure hope whatever is wrong with them can be fixed. It makes me sad that he can't run with me any more.

Ran home from high school the long way. Hit some spots i had to walk because there is NO shoulder on Cedarcrest Road in parts. I'd forgotten about that! Heaven forbid a driver not try to knock me into the ditch! There's just no sport in going AROUND the runner!

Ran with the Wil E Coyote this morning. It's his second run and he did pretty well. He did lunge at three dogs on the route (behind fences) so we're working on that. Otherwise he runs ahead or beside me, no lagging. I still want to run with Dash, but he just doesn't seem to enjoy it. Maybe he would if he ran WITH Wiley.

Run #1

  • 1.82 miles

First night of my new 5k class. Everything went really well! I have 11 people this time (a few more said they were coming, but didn't). It was POURING down rain, so I'm sure that kept some people away.

Run #2
  • 56m 11s

Seriously I can run faster, but when you have a 70 pound weight holding you back, it's a challenge! I got my dog harness out this morning (I use a hands free system to run with the dogs) and was going to take Wil E, but Dash got all "Oh no you didn't. That's MY job! I'm the running dog!" So I said, "yeah, like you even LIKE running" and he said "Oh Baby, I will run your ass off ANY day better than that sorry excuse for a canine over there!" So I said, "Oh yeah, prove it!" He did that little head bob thing and we headed out.

He was fine for about half a mile and then he's like, "Okay be0tch, I am SO over this shite." and I'm like "What? No way, Dude. You're the one who wanted to come." and he's like "Uh uh. This crap is for the birds." and I'm like "pick up the pace weenus!" so we stopped talking after awhile.

About two miles in we saw the girls coming up behind us so he gets ALL paranoid that we're being chased and picks up the pace, which was quite pleasant because NOW I can actually run. But then we kept looking back like he was being chased, so they went ahead of his and we talked and ran for awhile. When they turned off into the Y, he kept going so I figured we had another two miles in us.

He did pretty well until we hit our street and went past the house. I have explained to him MANY times that I do NOT shorten my runs. If I'm close to a mile marker, we MUST go to that mile. I can't just do 4.75 miles. It simply does not compute! So the last four miles was all "Uh uh" and "Uh huh!" and "This sucks!" and "Shut up and run!"

I think I'll take Wil E next time. He's never called me a Be0tch.

Got up and didn't know how far I wanted to run, just knew I wanted to do something. We ran to Sbux and had breakfast. Then decided to run out and head towards the casino. Ran a total of nine miles. The first three miles sucked, but after eating and my back settling down, I had a great last six miles. Roy biked with me. It was cold, but pleasant and it did start to warm up slightly after awhile.

Went to see a movie with Roy and then we celebrated his birthday. I made filet mignon, corn, baked potato, and zucchini. We split a killer brownie instead of cake, and the three mutts had milk bones.

Good day!

First 5k class is tomorrow night.
