It’s true, I’m a sucker for a good looking mutt. If you follow on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (and if you don’t, you should!), chances are, you’ve seen our new addition. Additions, really.
After we had to put my beloved running partner, Benjamin, down unexpectedly in February, we knew we couldn’t be a dogless family.
That’s when this beast caught our eyes
Miss Maggie May
She came to us through the awesome rescue group Because of Mandy, and we are forever grateful!
Following them on Facebook may be a detriment to my home, because I want to adopt every dog they post pics of!
Which brings us to Fredward. We’ve been watching him on Facebook for a few weeks, thinking surely someone would adopt him. Turns out that someone would be us 🙂
So mellow, even with a crazy 7 month old pup hanging from his ears all day.
Note: Maggie is NOT mellow. She’s a huge Diva (her rescue name..totally fitting), torments her big brother by stealing bones, toys, and trying to chew his head off when he gets near the food and water!
Let the training begin!
Speaking of training…
I’m on week 4 of marathon training, and I am happy to report I’m still alive!
Getting ready to head out
after my pizza settles shortly to try Fred out on a short 3 miler!
I’ve decided to cut the running down to 4 days a week, and add an extra day of strength training in.
So 4 runs, 2 strength, and 1 rest day it is!
I’m in LOVE with this workout, so that helps!
And then Beachbody goes and releases PiYo as early as today, so I may have another soulmate workout soon!
Check it out here! I have a feeling this will sell out SOON!
OK, time to get out and hit the pavement. Happy running everyone!
