dog days, injuries, and random facts!

happy belated national dog day!

woodford was so little here - he's probably put on 20 lbs since this picture taken in January
did you take your dog on an extra long walk yesterday?

or take him to the ball park to enjoy a game?

maybe a rousing game of fetch?

or maybe you just laid on the couch this weekend

and didn't run your 15 miles.

not because you weren't motivated.

not because you didn't buy extra gu chomps

honey snacks

zero vitamin water

had your handheld water bottle


and fuel belt

ready to tackle the 15 mile beast.

no you were ready.

you told yourself you'd kick some pavement booty

eat like a king

and spend the rest of the day stretching and watching movies.

instead a soup can kicked your ass.

actually it fell on my second toe.

knocked a toenail right off.

it hurt

there was screaming.

either the walls are well insulated or my neighbors don't care about me.

bill was in the potty and trying to communicate with me as i screamed hysterically in the pantry.

i spent the rest of my weekend kind of like this.

i ran some errands, but standing - the blood pressure wouldn't let the wound clot and was sending a few stings of pains through my leg.

it was an ouchie.  and i'm going to have to find a way to wrap this sucker to get my runs in this week.  i've decided my 12 mile long run in 2 weeks will become a 15 miler to try and makeup for this weekend.  granted i can put on a tennis shoe and run.  you'd be surprised how much your second toe moves.

****on a lighter note****
Sarah over at Our Family of Three has gifted me the versatile blogger award.  cool.

Sarah is a first time momma with a very cute baby who blogs about her craftyness around the house, organization, meal planning, her sweet husband, and her beautiful baby girl.  i've known her since high school and it's great to get updates via her blog!  thanks lady!

the rules of the award are:
1. Add the award to your blog. 2. Thank the person who presented it to you. 3. List seven random facts about yourself. 4. List the rules. 5. Pass the award onto seven other bloggers. 6. Inform each blogger they have won by posting a comment on their blog.

now, 7 random facts

1.  in the vein of high school - i competed in improvisational acting.  there were actually rounds of "serious" improv and if you did not stick to those rules you got points deducted.  it's actually harder to be serious than funny - at least for me.

2.  i'm not a very competitive person yet love to run races and watch sports with bill

3.  i went to a small liberal arts college where you had to either pass a swimming test or take a survival swimming class and pass before you were allowed to graduate.

4.  in middle school i had a tech teacher who was missing two fingers and a gym teacher who had prosthetic legs.

5.  my middle name is frances.  it is my grandmother's middle name and her grandmother's middle name.

6.  i'm an only child and can be very stubborn when it comes to following someone else's schedule

7.  i have a tattoo on my right foot of a lotus flower that many people mistake for a henna tattoo - ?  it's turquoise and commemorates my first half marathon that i worked really hard towards.  it reminds me that nothing is easy or comes free - hard work will get you where you want to be.  

instead of passing this along, maybe i can get to know some readers and lurkers better?  tell me some random facts about you!
