It is a bitter sweet time for me right now! I SHOULD be less than two weeks away from my first Half Marathon, wouldn't that mean tapering??? Instead, I haven't run since October 20th!! I can't even believe it has been 33 days since I have done any running. I feel pretty gross actually...I have taken the no running thing to mean no exercise at all and have been altogether blah!!! Oh well, I will get my butt in gear soon, I'm sure. I should at least have super tight abs as it is the only thing I can work on that doesn't kill my knee or my shoulder!!!
On a happier note, I finally have a girl!! You guys didn't know?? Do I really hide it that well?? haha!! Just kiddin! We have a beautiful male Wheaton Terrier ( the one that had the $4K eye surgery a few months ago) who is 4 years old and pure puppy still with tons of energy! Me and the boys have been begging to get another dog, and hubby has not been on board at all, especially since shelling out the dough for the eye surgery BUT Shilo needs a friend......right??
Well the sweetest hubby in the world gave in and allowed my parents to buy this sweet little girl for my sweet little boys as an early Christmas present!!!
Isn't she sweet???
Her name is Sophie and we all love her.......even Shilo is starting to love her a bit ( although at 35 lbs her senior, he tends to play a little rough), but she doesn't back down, I'm teaching her to be tough!!!!
She is a Schnoodle - 1/2 schnauzer and 1/2 poodle. She will not shed and will only be about 15 pounds!! She is soooooo cute! Now, after 6 years , I am waking up in the middle of the night and feel like I have another baby, BUT it is well worth it because I think she is a perfect addition to our family!!
I have not caught up on everyone's racing and running weekends yet, but I plan to catch up over the Holiday!! If I do not post again before Thursday, please know that I am thankful for all of you!! My Bloggy running friends are so awesome and so supportive. I wish you all a very happy and safe Thanksgiving weekend!!!
