A few randoms for Friday! I took LE to a dog beach in Downs Memorial Park (Pasadena, MD). It was so much fun to see her in water.

It took several attempts to force persuade her to come all the way in the water, but once she was in she seemed to enjoy it. I know now that she is definitely not a water dog. We can rule out any sort of retriever or lab mix I may have once thought she was. Swimming did not come naturally to her at all.


She couldn’t figure out how to use her back legs while swimming which was a real funny thing to witness. Her legs just kinda floated up as she pedaled with her front paws.


It was a great day at the beach, and i’ve been craving an ice cream cone ever since… don’t ask me why but beach and ice cream just sounded good. I have yet to satisfy this craving though. 😦



When I got home and cleaned her up she passed out pretty hard. Life of a dog right?File_000 (239)

Random running fact for the month of June – I hit an all time high mileage of 170.5! Ultra training is packing on the miles. OH and i finally pulled the trigger and i’m in for the Philadelphia Marathon!

Annnnnd a pretty sunset just because…
