And We Ran…

This evening didn’t go as planned but turned out pretty well. I took my gym clothes to work, changed in my office and drove to the gym. The instant I was getting out of my car I realized that I didn’t have my ipod shuffle. I am not that person who can workout in any way without some music. I did consider it. I considered lifting all of the weights without music. I considered it for 3.67 seconds and then drove home.
I’m not that person.

I was all dressed with no where to go, so I put on Bo’s harness and we went for a short run. It is still hot and humid here in NW Ohio and Bo doesn’t do well in that environment, which made it a short run. We ran just under 1.5 miles and poor Bo was panting like crazy when we got home. As I walk around the house when we get home, Bo feels the need to follow me no matter what. He is laying down, panting and dying, but if I leave the kitchen, he has to follow me. I have found it best to just sit on the floor with him, it keeps him from walking all over the house when he doesn’t need to.

2015-08-11 18.22.05To tell you the truth, I haven’t run at all since April. What?! Yup, April. The slow death of my personal life took over and I let it.
Even though, it was under 1.5 miles, it felt good. Bo runs with the speed of an Olympic sprinter and it can be hard to keep up with him. Not my speed, but it felt damn good to get out and running again. Which is good, because I have a half marathon in 6ish weeks!2015-08-11 18.23.34-1 Bo typically takes a hot minute to cool down, but the instant he does, he is right back to his old self. Which is typically sleeping or chewing on a bone.
He chose option one right after he recovered. And he earned it with his first run back.2015-08-11 18.50.37The fact that we don’t have a fenced in yard ensures that I will be running with Bo a hell of a lot more now.


  1. Oh my gosh you are both so cute!! I think I’m doing a half in 6 weeks too. I should train.
