Thank you for the comments on my blog! My friend who organized the event had prepared small bowls with treats already when I arrived. She did not want me to bother getting out the food I had taken with me... opening a box of (healthy) crackers, among other things, that might as well stay closed. I agreed that it was more convenient that way, but realized only later that it meant I would have to guess how much I could eat of the stuff she placed in front of us without going too far off my plan. 3 days ago
Funny - my mini goal is 5,000 before I leave the office too. I could easily only get 1,000 here in the office if I don't get up from my seat purposefully and walk on my breaks. Most days after work I walk with DH & the girls now and then I'm doing the C25K program as well. 10 days ago
Piper used to go on races with me that she was allowed on but sadly most of the races around here don't allow dogs because of insurance purposes. In her younger days she would have loved to run in the rain.
While she loves to run when we are walking the island, she can't train with me anymore due to arthritis in her joints. She gets very, very sore if she overdoes. We have her on a supplement that helps but we have to be careful to not let her go wild anymore. Our vet told us its likely due to the fact her breeder ruined her line (she came from what once was an excellent line of English Shepherds but the breeder turned into a hoarder/neglect case and was convicted of animal abuse). If we let her run too much, she has a very hard time getting up and getting her body going and she is only 8 1/2...very sad.
You know what's funny? I don't like coffee either. The coffee is just an excuse for all the sugar, flavors and whipped cream I can get in a cup with a tiny bit of coffee thrown in for the caffeine. Sad eh? 23 days ago
