It's my little guy's birthday today. He's four. He's supposed to be all mellow and laid back and what-not. He's not. He's crazy and energetic and everything a Bernese Mountain Dog is NOT supposed to be. My freak-boy. Being a not-normal-BMD has its benefits. I can take him for runs with me, providing it's … Continue reading Running With Dogs
I don't normally run races in my town. Not because I don't want to, but because they're rarely available. Every year the color run comes here, and there's a pretty good turn out, but the last two races I registered for here were, shall we say, less than stellar.

I'm kind of an "all or nothing" person, which is one of the reasons the creeping crud from hell has hung on so long. … Continue reading Jumping Back In
For the first time in a month I am feeling human! I woke up this morning and let the dogs out and it was in the upper 50s/lower 60s and my first thought was, "Ohhhh, it would be a good morning to go on a run!" That is the first time in a month (maybe … Continue reading HUMAN!
It has been a ROUGH end to 2018. It was a ROUGH beginning to 2018. It's just been a long, long year! Started off the year with a friend going into the hospital and never fully recovering. He passed a couple of months ago. My husband and I bought the business that he and his … Continue reading The Times, They Are A-Changin’
