Puppies and Sunshine

Because my blogging hasn’t been all puppies and sunshine lately…


Here is a puppy.

And here’s sunshine. This is unfortunately not from today, as it’s a rainy mess in NYC.

Yesterday, I woke up early, laid in bed and made a million excuses to myself why I couldn’t run.


And then I saw a sign.


I saw my medal holder on my dresser and thought to myself, “Real runners don’t make dumb excuses,” and got myself out the door with Bailey for a run. I don’t often run with him since I’m usually running either too far or too fast for him, but yesterday I decided to just run for time, and run for about a half hour because it would either be that or nothing. We ran for about a half hour, so I’d assume we ran about 3 miles.

I have 10 miles planned for this weekend, but I slept until a blissfully late 9:30 this morning and have been relaxing all morning, which has been wonderful and much needed. I have a fun blogger workout event this afternoon, and I didn’t feel like rushing back from my run to get ready for the event. (Or doing it on tired legs.)

What’s your puppies and sunshine (your happy place)?

    I can only take Kobe for shorter runs as he is getting older :(. But he loves going out so sometimes it’s worth the shorter distances πŸ˜‰

    My happy place is running on the Lakefront path in Chicago early in the morning when the sun is rising up. My other happy place is playing with my dog.
