First of all – stop the presses – if you were not aware, it is Dog Week. Which means you have to look at this gem that a reader, Laurissa, pointed out to me. Here is a teaser:
There is more hilarity to this comic strip and you seriously have to check it out HERE. I have spent a good part of this morning laughing and re-laughing at this thing, mostly because it is much more fun than reading about foster care. My only gripe is that the author is clearly male because he does not discuss how much dogs love used tampons. Big omission.
After passing out last night in unbearable fatigue from Sunday night’s festivities, I slept for a solid 7 hours and woke up refreshed and ready to go for a run. This is my best attempt at a white woman’s dance move. My kids think I am stiff and rhythm-less. What do they know!
Yes, I realize my shoes look like I’ve taken this and colored them very carefully. These just might be the most loud and obnoxious shoes I’ve ever owned. I love them and next I will be getting these:
I am sharing this next picture with you from Saturday’s race so you can be jealous.
Not everyone has the talent and skill to run with one foot turned almost perpendicular to their body. The Chi Running folks would shit a brick. I don’t even know how I did that without dislocating my entire pelvis.
I am happy to see I do not do that on every stride. This one is much better.
I am also pleased to see that I am mostly hitting my mid foot strike, even if that strike is pointed in a different direction than the rest of my body is going.
I love running because there is always more work to do and race pictures are a wonderful way to learn how crappy you look. And, NO, these pictures are not PROOFS. What makes you think that?
Do you look differently in your race photos than you think you look? Yes. That’s why I love this:
Do you like bright shoes or prefer the subtler colors? I like bright all the way.
Does your dog do any of those things? Hell yes. My dog is a licker. All day long. He doesn’t eat a lot of poop but has been known to eat his own vomit and tampons. Humping young children is also a most favorite past time of his, so hold onto your babies.
