This mornings Run:
The run actually went pretty good. I did the usual 2 miles with Sophie and then headed back out for 8 more miles. Temp's were great and it was a beautiful sunny morning. I finished in 1:42 for a 10:15 pace, with the last three miles at 10:06, 10:10 and 10:08 - pretty happy with that. It felt good. And although it was great for a little 10 mile run - Today was also the WI Ford Ironman event. At 7:30 pm the temp is 81 - certainly warmer than the athletes would have preferred.
K-9 Doggie Paddle fundraiser:
This afternoon my son, his girlfriend and I headed to our community pool with our dogs. This was I think the 3rd annual K-9 doggie paddle. The pool closed last weekend - but was opened today for dogs to enjoy and boy did our dogs love the water. This event is a fund raiser for the Police K-9 unit with proceeds going to support the 6 dogs and necessary training. One of the dogs was there and boy he was well behaved . . . . There were about a couple hundred other dogs in the pool - but it was not crowded.
Sophie and Nutmeg will sleep well tonight! I will too! ;-)
