Too lazy to retro post.

The runs were with Meesha.  Today's run was the best as she pretty much just trotted alongside me.  In the mile after the half mile walk today, Meesha started lagging a bit behind, so I'll have to make sure that I don't overdo it.

Running and walking with Meesha

We went on a mile walk last night with Meesha, so I knew that she was pretty good at obeying during a walk.  (She also showed no fear of fireworks, motorcycles, or loud noises) What I didn't know is how she'd do on a run...erm, shuffle...uh, whatever it is that I do...anyways, this morning I took her for a run.  And she did brilliantly!

For the most part, after about a half a mile, she ran along side me with the leash loose.  She didn't pull a lot, and she didn't try to stop and sniff too many times. I think with consistent training, she'll be a good partner for me to run with.  Yay!

This is Meesha.  She's on the running team now.

Happy 4th!

Same course as Wednesday, only faster.  Of course, I didn't have Denali along for the walk portion, so there's that...

It was a beautiful sunny day for this run.  60 degrees F with little wind.

I bought some new shoes to help me stay on the wagon; I asked the clerk how to pronounce the name, but I've forgotten it already: Saucony.  I think I took a stab at Saw-Cone-ee, but that that pronunciation was not correct.  It's probably French...or Belgiumish (whatever they call their language.)

The return of green

I've been biking more this summer.  Trace has a job, Brandy has a job, and I have a job; we have two cars, so there is some juggling going on.  One of the things that I've started doing to help minimize extra trips is to leave my Murano at Brandy's work and bike home (Trace drops her off in the morning).

I think I've done this 3 or 4 times (I didn't keep track).  Now that I'm back on the running wagon, I'll start keeping track of my biking exploits as well.  Lucky you!

Back to running

Two miles running and a cooldown walk with Denali.  I'll probably go on another walk with Brandy this evening which will add a mile or two of walking to this total.
