Look What I Found!

For those of you who do not know this about me by now, I am a sucker for animals.  I have a soft spot for strays and been known rescue any that cross my path.  This sweet little girl followed my son home from the park on Friday and spent the weekend with us.  I think she is a Chihuahua. Correct?

I just found a stray back in November, Buster, and ended up keeping him because there was no response to the flyer I posted. The stray dog loves my son and he already named her "Sugar."  I swear I am not going to keep her!!  She is a good dog and is even potty trained but I can't keep three dogs. I am going to put some posters up tomorrow and keep my fingers crossed that her owner comes forward.  I don't want to take her to the shelter because I know that she will be euthanized if she is not adopted within a few days.

I was able to run 6.67 miles on Saturday morning.  It was warm out there!!  I actually stepped off of the treadmill for this one and it felt kind of nice. I took several walk breaks since I didn't want to take a chance running the stretches of my route that were slightly hilly. I tried to keep my pace around 10:00 and that felt pretty comfortable. I took today off from running in hopes of getting a longer run in tomorrow.
Congratulations to my co-workers Shawna and Hershal who ran the Angels 5K today.  They had a great time but I wish I could have been out there running it with them. I guess there is always next time :)

How was your weekend?  Did you race or get a long run in?


  1. Must've felt great to get off the treadmill for that 6.67 miles!

  2. well done! Good run and great focus on pace!

  3. Great run! Hope you are able to find the owner of the dog soon.

  4. I just realized that your blog had not shown on my reader and I missed 6 posts...
    I dont know why this happened

  5. It's great that you are taking care of that stray, I hope someone takes them into their home permanently soon!

    I ran 9mi for my long run this weekend, and I'll do 10 this Saturday. Anyone who runs on a treadmill is amazing to me because I simply can't. I think it's so much harder than being on the streets.
