  1. Another amazing month of tri training. I don’t know how you fit it all in and keep your sanity! Great job. We have been loving iced lemonaid too.

    My husband always treated “his” dog (we have two. One is kinda mine and the other kinda his) like a person. So the dog thinks it’s not a dog.
    Fast forward today, both dogs are elderly. I would have swore that, being raised a farm girl, those dogs were just animals. Pets at best. We are facing some hard decisions about their health or lack of good health. All the sudden those hairy sometimes smelly creatures with the most expressive faces are anything BUT just pets. So I can see why taking pictures is such an obession.

  2. Another huge month. It’s amazing to think that you spent almost a whole day running when you add up all your times.

    And I for one can totally understand your obsession with taking pictures of your pooch. There’s nothing wrong with having more photos of your dog than of your kids is there?

  3. why didn’t you sign up for IMMT – French?

    if you and maurk ever have babies you will need to upgrade your phone for bigger photo storage.

    school traffic: my excuse for being late to work september thru may.

  4. 150+ running miles–whoa! I’m working my way back up to a third of that! Congrats on picking your race for next summer. It’s wonderful to have races to look forward to. 🙂
