Puppies and Running and Sushi, oh my!

I've been a bad blogger the past week.  I'm sorry I've been so absent...I feel like I haven't had a lot going on to blog about and didn't want to bore you.

Last Thursday was supposed to be a run day, but J got home from a business trip and my knee was a little sore, so I skipped it.  Then Saturday I was set to meet Sharon for a morning run, but my "monthly visitor" decided to show up and I had horrid cramps.

Saturday afternoon Guinness and I went to Woofstock...a huge pet in the park party put on by a local radio station, Star 94.  We got some free stuff and enjoyed walking around the park checking out all the vendors.  Saturday night I met some friends for dinner then home to crash.

Monday J left for California and I was determined to get a run in...my next 5k is on Sunday!!!  I got a last minute invite out to dinner and I knew I had to squeeze my run in, so I cranked out a short 1.5 mile run and was able to maintain a little under a 12 m/m pace :)  That's my ultimate goal right now, and I was pleased with myself.

I had a nice reward at dinner - seeing my sweet friend, Jessica, and her sister, Haley.  We had great conversation and great food -

Volcano roll, veggie fried rice, and edamame...yum!!

Tonight Guinness and I went to my favorite pet store in the area, Fido's Market, for a Canine Nutrition 101 class.  It's so amazing at all the garbage that they put in dog foods.  I learned so much, including that Pup Peroni has one of the ingredients they use in antifreeze!!!  I enjoyed a mini cupcake and water, while G had a "pupcake" and frozen goat's milk!

Frozen goat's milk, G's pupcakes, and my cupcake

I want it now, Mom!!
Since I'm running the race on Sunday, my next run day isn't until Thursday, and my plan is to run the full 3.1 miles and work on my intervals to prepare myself.  Sorry this one had more about my normal life than running life, but that's what keeps us balanced, right?

Oh!  Before I forget - two very fabulous fellow bloggers are having some giveaways!  Bethi over at Disney Mommi is giving away a super cute Minnie Mouse inspired SPIbelt, and Tess at Because I Run is giving away a ultra cool running shirt....so check out their blogs and who knows...ya might win something!

Until next time,



  1. That's cute that the frozen goats milk is shaped like dog bones! I work at a Vet Clinic and we have a Pet Supply Store connected to our clinic. They bought some frozen goats milk a few months ago that has been sitting in our freezer ever since. No one wants to buy it :( So it just sits next to our ice pops.

    That cupcake looks delicious!

    1. Guinness LOVED them...we got a free sample of it at Woofstock so he can have more :)


Your comments make me smile :)
