In more good news... look who is starting to get friendly. This is the closest these two have gotten without swatting or barking. They'll be cuddling in no time.
Lately, Holly has taken a liking to eating my shoes. It's a new hobby of hers, and one that is not good for my wallet or sanity. She also enjoys taking everything she possibly can from various rooms of the house and depositing them in our bedroom while we are sleeping at night. We wake up in the morning to a slew of random objects strewn about the room.
|But could you really be mad at this face?|
Holly is a saint. She doesn't eat entire walls or sets of blinds like some of the dogs apparently do, so I think I'm pretty lucky.
So, about that whole marathon training thing. I am all signed up to run Long Beach on October 7th. I don't think I'll be doing that. I learned awhile back that Angela has school that weekend and won't be able to join me. She's back in school getting her doctorate in Physical Therapy and has classes on the weekends - ick! It just wouldn't be the same if I went up to Long Beach and stayed in a hotel by myself and ran the race without her being at the finish line. I know that sounds incredibly lame, especially since I had a handful of friends offer to join me in Long Beach and cheer me on. But I'm not really digging the marathon training at the moment because of the heat. I miss winter training. I am so looking forward to the change of seasons. I know, I know, I live in San Diego where people think the seasons never change. I strongly disagree. Mid 60s are quite different than high 80s, thankyouverymuch. With that said, I am planning on Boston 2013. Who's with me?
P.S. I'm sure you've all used the Paul Ryan Running Calculator by now (old news, I know), but I am only 10 minutes away from a world record when using Paul Ryan's math! Why would anyone lie about their marathon time and think they could get away with it? Did Paul Ryan not realize that most runners are neurotic, Type A individuals that would most definitely double check his time? C'mon, man!
