Cooper stayed with my neighbor while I went for my run today. I managed 3.2 miles in 34 minutes. That is slower than my usual pace, but I didn't run the whole distance. For some reason my feet were dragging today. So, it is probably a good thing I am not running tomorrow. I will be running on Saturday though!
Saturday is the 5k race. The first one I am attempting to run. I walked this one last year, and if my memory is correct I finished in about 43 minutes. This year I want to finish in 35 minutes or better. To make the experience even better I get to meet another Sparkfriend. Doglady13 is driving out tomorrow to be here to run with me on Saturday. How cool is that?! It is a long drive for her, so I am doubly impressed. I have met so many cool people here at SparkPeople. The support and encouragement is tremendous!
Cooper is doing a little better today. We still aren't walking very much or going very fast, but the swelling has gone down, and he managed to jump up on the bed last night. He still isn't eating very much, so I have been spoiling him with treats and goodies. He really likes cheese... just like I do.
