Being sick sucks, lets just get that out of the way.  I’ve been couch / bed ridden since Friday of last week because of some random space virus that has destroyed my lungs / throat.  I missed my 4 mile run, my 80 mile bike ride with my wife, and I missed out on another run today.  The good news is, I think I’m getting over it… I do still feel like I’m breathing through a straw, but that will go away with time.  Until then, I’m just a whiny person about being sick.

I thought this post up while I was walking the wiener.  Clementine usually starts out walks with all sorts of pizzaz and spunk; usually by the end of the walk she’s dying and just ready for it to be over. Today while walking with her, I noticed how often she looks up at me and makes this gesturing look… Like I could never do any wrong, and I’m a super human being and I  make her soooooo happy.  Which got me wondering, what makes me so special in my dog’s eyes?  I’m not going to gesture and say shit like “it’s cause I’m trying”, or “cause I’m a super human being” etc.  I’m just going to continue trying to live up to that unknown standard that my dog believes I am… And so should you.


T-2 weeks until my first official 5k, I’m pretty scurred.

    You are so cute. PS, I think Clem knows her people, and I agree with her :)
