Marathon Monday

BostonStrongRibbonMarathon Monday is here! I am not running it but have many FB friends who are and I am just so excited for them and wish them the absolute best. Weather is gorgeous though, maybe a little warm, but hey, it’s not raining.

Since I am a NH resident, I no longer get Marathon Monday off. I cleverly signed up for a training to try and make for a short an easy day for myself but forgot that I have a late meeting that starts at 5:30PM.

Therefore, I took a 3 hour break in the middle of my day to get in a strength training work out as well as a run/ walk with Sadie. The weather is glorious and YOLO!

photo 1 (4)Sadie and I went to this little hiking trail a couple miles from our apartment that not a lot of people know about. I like this because I can let Sadie off leash and am not wicked likely to run into someone who is fearful of Sadie. Oh, and I think it makes my family and friends feel better that I am not going to get murdered by hiking solo since no one else is there. Or maybe it is the opposite? I am not sure. Regardless Sadie has my back, bro.

It was in the 70’s sunny and a light breeze. Absolutely perfect day!

Sadie and I ran for about a mile.

Sadie gets winded and needs breaks to eat disgusting things, her version of carbo-loading

Sadie then cooled off with her first swim of the season.

She much prefers swimming

Her reward for all her hard-work was this awesome stick…

Puppy at heart

That she carried proudly all the way back to the car…

There were a bunch of turtles sun bathing on logs, that Sadie barked at and ran at so that they would dive into the river. SO here is a pic of an empty log…

Sadie may have tried to get her stick into the car, but I feel like her fur all over the place it plenty…

I showered and headed into work for my meeting. Despite the 3 hour, break I still managed a 9 hour day so I did well taking a little breather!
