Happy Adoption Day, Guinness! (And a run, too!)

A year ago today, we adopted Guinness into our lives.  I blogged about him last week so I won't go into a ton of detail, but I had to give him a shout out!

I baked him some "pupcakes" from a recipe I found on Best Bully Sticks blog (great products for dogs and cats!) and got him a new toy by West Paw Design from our awesome local pet store, Fido's Market.

Today wasn't a bad day at work, but it being a BEAUTIFUL day outside made it hard to sit at my desk for 8 hours.  I was so ready to head to the park and get my run on!  I stretched and started my C25K training.  Our pollen count was relatively low, and normally it doesn't bother me, but I started sneezing, coughing, and sniffling all during the run, and my throat got drier than normal.  I had to walk when I was supposed to run at times, but I made up for it when I was supposed to walk.  I'll do this day over again because I felt I could have pushed myself farther.  I did go two tenths of a mile further than I did on Saturday, so that was a big plus!  

J is still sick, so after my run I went to Wal-Mart for medicine, Atlanta Bread Company for soup, and Menchie's for frozen yogurt for him.  Hopefully he feels better soon!  Tomorrow is an off day for running, so I plan to come home and play with the pup since he didn't get too much love from me today.

Until next time,



  1. Very cute puppy! My girls would love a dog, but I'm holding out. Sorry you were all allergic during your run, but good for you for doing it! Hope your hubby feels better soon!

  2. Very cute little boy :)! Glad you're feeling good with your running.


Your comments make me smile :)
