My fur baby is so oblivious to the pain he causes me sometimes. As we headed out of our garage for our evening walk last night, something caught his eye – and he went gunning for it – with me still holding onto his leash! Everything would have been fine had I been paying attention, but we were still walking out of the garage, I wasn’t paying any attention. I rammed into the side of the garage cutting two of my fingers and giving myself a pretty bruise on my left arm. Thanks TAJ! Thank you for your concern. Taj didn’t get to frolic like he normally does due to this incident. He was punished with a short walk to do his business.

In other exciting news – my race is coming up in like 2 weeks. The Cherry Blossom New Balance training Progam notified me ( i get an email everyday with what I should be doing) that this weekend’s training will be my last long run before the race! OMG.. I haven’t even really gotten past 6 miles! On Wednesday I was able to half-ass 7 miles. I had planned on running later in the evening due to this heat wave the DMV area has been experiencing. I headed to mom’s house to run around the lake in her neighborhood. I started at 6:20, and even then it was HOTT.. i started out and actually planned to stop and grab water after 1.5 miles.. My mom was planning on going for a walk so I was hoping to catch her on her way out of the house, but as I rounded the corner near her house, I saw her already outside – so I kept going.. with my throat PARCHED! I got to 2 miles and just about gave up. I walked for a few minutes, and was ready to just call it an evening – maybe even finish out walking with my mom. I spotted her as she ran towards me! My mother was running.. so I felt I should run too. I did another .5 miles.. stopped to see where she was at, and then just decided to keep on running. I stopped again around mile 4, and then again after mile 5. But eventually just finished out after mile 7. That was a workout! After I got to mile 5, I figured I might as well finish. That was the first time I had run around the same loop over and over again. It actually wasn’t that bad, and was at least safe since I was running in the dark. There were a ton of people out too so it wasn’t as boring as running around a track. I finished in 1:24.. not toooo bad considering, but I am hoping to better on my next try. Saturday I hope to do 4-6 and Sunday will be 7-8!

Have a great weekend!
