He's a Runner!!


We were out on the road at like 6:50am. Not wanting to be but needed to get a run in and burn off some steam. I wasn't sure how he would be but he has tons of energy so lets direct it. We walked for 5 minutes and got the bathroom stuff taken care of( I thought ). He ran with little problems -even though it was trash day in our neighborhood and the pee on every tree thing.
I forgot to write down the plan so we improvised- 10 min run/5min walk/6min run. We should have ended with an eight minute run but 2 dogs wanted to meet us.
BTW HE is a boy although I keep finding myself saying and typing she- Sorry to confuse.
I missed some of the arm motion of jogging holding the leash so we need to work on that but for the first day it went pretty well.
Saturday I am running a 5K in Walpole http://www.villagefair5k.com/ It is about a 15 minute drive from Normandy Farms where we are camping for the weekend. Also out of my regular space so I don't know anyone or where I am running. I kind of like that. I want to just try it on my own.
When I get back I will be sure to update.

Hi Jen,
Caleb is very cute. I hope to meet him in person sometime. Good luck on your 5K. Looks like you'll have good weather for it. I can't believe your eldest is 5!!

WTG on the dog-run. I have a goal to get Rizzo out for a run rather than a drag someday.
