– Last week was my first official training week for Grandma’s Marathon and I killed it! You know it’s been a bad year thus far when Week 1 of marathon training is more than January and February combined. Still a win. It may have helped that we finally have some decent weather at the end of the week. I even got to go for a runch*! Bring on Week 2!!! (I’m less certain about Week 3 since it involves hill workouts :/ )
– Friday night ended up with more miles than planned. I brought home a temporary foster for the night to give her a break from the shelter. Unfortunately she bolted out of the door on Fella and the rest of the night was spent running around the neighborhood trying to get eyes on her. Fortunately she was not gone for very long and was back at the rescue, safe and sound, but Saturday afternoon. Not really looking forward to ever having that happen again.
– This is a terrible picture, but I had to cave last week and use the treadmonster over at Fella’s brother’s house. I was tired of not being able to feel my face on runs. His new dog, Jorge, has not quite figured the treadmill out yet and kept an eye on me during each and every one of my runs. A couple of times he tried to hop on with me which would not have ended well. A 125 pound dog flying into me at 5.5 mph? No thank you!
– The brother of my good friend has two wolf hybrids who just had an accidental litter of puppies (long story). That being said, they are so freaking cute! I went and visited them last week when they were about 4 weeks old and the cutest little fluff balls that you have ever seen.
