Today started with my final long run of my training cycle and I was lucky enough to have Meaghan as great company! There’s nothing better than losing track of the miles because you’re telling a story or solving world issues or listening to your friend doing the same. It was a great run to wrap up my season and confirm my readiness for the Maine Coast Marathon in one week. Eeeeekkkk!!!!!
Between normal Saturday housework, regular play sessions with Bella, and a wonderful pulled chicken sandwich for lunch, I was able to sneak in a 45 minute sun-snooze –
My friend Sue blessed me with her presence/presents (yes, there’s a back story here) in a great impromptu visit and Martyn was just about pulling into my driveway as Sue was leaving. Martyn had his dog Lilly in tow and was looking for company for a hike in the woods. Bella was first to raise her paw, so we were off!
These two played, swam, and retrieved for the entire 1.5 hours we were out in the woods –
I’ll give you 3 guesses...who had the treats?
This could be dubbed “bridge over troubled waters” when you’re faced with crossing this bridge one week before a marathon (please don’t fall, please don’t fall, please don’t fall…)
I didn’t fall J
And lastly, I share with you a short video of Bella and Lilly letting off some puppy steam. Maybe you have to be a dog person, but the point in the video where they stop and stare each other down, only to begin again in earnest? Hilarious.
So….a very full day of great activity and wonderful friends! I’m so grateful for days like today. And will be particularly grateful for my bed. Soon.
