why you dont bike with a dog, among other things…

so had a 9 mile run today, and well, i just wasnt feeling it all day.  i took a nap when i got home, and managed to motivate.  i dont know what happened to the dog, but he was seemingly a-okay with being left in his crate while i ran – just a peanut butter …

hooray!

in the first run since the doctor, i was supposed to do 4 miles.  i was trying not to be as hard headed as i have been and try to listen to some of the bf’s advice (disclaimer though – he’s only done a half marathon before).  he told me to start speeding up my …

and the verdict is…
