A puppy is tiring and she isn’t even mine. Just playing with her is exhausting. She passed her first vet check with flying colors. What is it about the vets office that makes all animals want to cuddle? She didn’t even have a frame of reference, but she was not happy. She also finally has a name. Meet Zoey–
Vacation brain has somewhat set in but I was able to get in a 5 mile run on Tuesday. It started out really sluggish but all in all it was a pretty good run. I never quite got up to speed but I felt good at the end. This run also put me within 1.1 miles of my Pile on the Miles goal! Woo hoo! I may succeed at a challenge!
Tomorrow’s Turkey Trot will be the final push needed to meet my goal. It should be a smaller race, there’s only race day registration available. But it’s also fairly cheap and it benefits the local high school wrestling team as well as the food bank. I am planning on meeting C and her husband there tomorrow morning. It’s close, so I can pretty much roll out of bed and head over there. (See- Slacker!!!!) I would not say that I am super prepared for this so my goal is just have fun. It will be more for the camaraderie than the pace. I say that now, we’ll see if I follow through or bolt at the starting line 🙂
I thought by this point of vacation, I would be going a little stir crazy. But, nope, just slacking it big time. I should be Christmas shopping, I have an advertising plan that I am woefully behind on. Actually forget Christmas, both my parents birthdays are next week. I need to register for classes, etc etc. I did manage to get my car to the dealer to fix the door locks and made it through a dentist appointment with flying colors. 🙂 I also met some friends for a yummy lunch today. We couldn’t decide where to go, so we hit the Irish pub. I had never been there before. Pretty sad considering it’s 2 blocks for where I used to work…for 5 years. We ate some of the largest salads I have ever seen. M’s made me laugh, it was called the “Man Salad”. It looked amazing though. We may have gone over their lunch a bit, oops.
Now its time to get some rest for tomorrows race and family fun to follow. Plus puppy time!
I hope anyone who’s traveling has safe journeys.
Anyone else running a “trot” tomorrow? Good luck!
