• Dog Tired

    July 4, 2010

    HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!! :mrgreen:

    Murphy had so much fun yesterday, he’s dog tired this morning. (My husband is pretty exhausted, too.) I, however, am an early riser, so I popped out of bed before 7:00 today. Plus, it’s the 4th of July! Wake up, boys!!


    As soon as I got up, I chugged some water, threw on my running gear, and headed out for a 5-mile run. I ran a new route this morning, which was very hilly. My legs felt like a million pounds, but I still managed to cover 5.15 miles in 46:10 (8:57 pace). I ended up walking once– the hills were killer!! 😯


    When I got home, Murphy and Mal were still snoozing away. Dog tired, I tell ya.


    Now, I’m eating toasted Manna Bread with Barney Butter. I’m also planning to have a banana and, of course, a glass of iced coffee with soy milk. I swear, a big iced coffee after a long run tastes a-mazing! 😀


    Later this morning, I’m heading out to my in-law’s house with a bunch of friends to celebrate the 4th. I hope Murphy (and Mal) can muster up the energy for another fun-filled day!

    See ya! 😎

    So inspiring! I wish I had gotten up for an early run 🙂

    Happy 4th! I can’t believe how much the temp has jumped today. I don’t know how I’m going to run in this heat


    Jill@MySoCalledHealthLife July 4, 2010 at 9:40 am

    Boys can just be so lazy! My boy is still in bed too 😉

    Also, I’m loving the red shoes. So unintentionally patriotic. Go America 🙂


    Jessica @ How Sweet It Is July 4, 2010 at 9:45 am

    I love those red shoes!

    What a great sounding Fourth! 🙂 Hope you all enjoy your holiday (if you can get the boys out of bed, that is)!

    Well aren’t you an early bird? I could never wake up before 7am in the summer -__- but I love your breakfast! That Manna bread looks sooo good 😀

    Happy 4th! 🙂

    I am NOT good on the hills either…..they just about kill me. Have a great 4th:)


    Hannah July 4, 2010 at 9:51 am

    Happy 4th! I love how Murphy is even *under* the blankets. What a life!


    Erica July 4, 2010 at 10:03 am

    Have a great 4th Tina! Great job on the run 🙂 Frank looks very similar to Murphy this AM…I’m about to post a picture and give murphy a shout out 😉


    Kerri July 4, 2010 at 10:06 am

    Have a fun fourth. Murphy is too cute. Your holiday run is inspiring.


    Grapeful July 4, 2010 at 10:14 am

    Your Murphy stories and pictures (especially!) never get old. Keep ’em coming!


    Teresa July 4, 2010 at 10:23 am

    Great job on the run. You’re hip must be feeling better. I would love to get one of those Garmin Forerunners, but I can’t decide if it’s worth the money. Would be nice to see how far and how fast I can run. Have a great fourth!


    Kathleen July 4, 2010 at 10:23 am

    Happy 4th!! Have a great day!!


    Helen July 4, 2010 at 10:31 am

    Awwww Murphy is the cutest thing ever! He was tired indeed! Glad your run went ok despite the hills, that pace is great.


    Mary @ Bites and Bliss July 4, 2010 at 10:34 am

    I bet you guys were popped!! Busy day yesterday! Have a happy and safe 4th! 🙂


    Jess @ Jessica is Getting Fit July 4, 2010 at 10:35 am

    Happy 4th of July girl! I ran a 6 mile race for the 4th yesterday. I’ve heard it’s *the* weekend for races in the USA! How funny is that?

    I love the pictures of Murphy – he’s so sweet!


    diana(mymarblerye) July 4, 2010 at 10:41 am

    glad you are having a great weekend Tina! you needed some time with your loved ones after all the traveling!! Enjoy that delish Barney Butter!


    Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) July 4, 2010 at 10:44 am

    Happy 4th Tina! I hope you have a great day with your family!


    Sara July 4, 2010 at 10:44 am

    Cutest picture of Murphy…ever! 🙂 Have a great 4th!!


    Kelly July 4, 2010 at 10:51 am

    Great minds think alike! I did an early little over 5 mile run this morning too. But my course was super flat since I’m at the coast. I hope you have a wonderful 4th and that eventually M & M get out of the bed. 🙂


    Amber K July 4, 2010 at 10:53 am

    I’m eating Barney Butter with my oatmeal! Yum, yummy, yum.

    No working out for me today, working at the church until the festivities this afternoon. Have a good day!


    ciria July 4, 2010 at 11:01 am

    Murphy is sooo cute, I am falling in love of him 🙂


    Staceyhttp://stacey-healthylife.blogspot.com/ July 4, 2010 at 11:18 am

    What a great start to the day. Murphy looks so tired it’s so cute.


    Freya @ Brit Chick Runs July 4, 2010 at 11:18 am

    Good time considering the hills – I don’t think I could have done that!


    Stacey @ Tipping the (Kitchen!) Scales July 4, 2010 at 11:40 am

    Murphy is too cute!! Glad your run went well and enjoy the 4th!


    Robyn @ Frugal 'n' Fit! July 4, 2010 at 12:01 pm

    I agree, a big iced coffee after a run is amazing! In truth, a big iced coffee after, well, anything, is pretty amazing. Amazing-ness is its very essence 🙂

    Happy 4th of July!


    Deva (Voracious Vorilee) July 4, 2010 at 12:20 pm

    Iced coffee is amazing after a run – or any workout! I love it with turbinado sugar for the crunch!


    Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter July 4, 2010 at 12:21 pm

    My puppy is also exhausted, but that’s from staying up all night being panicked from the people who set off their fireworks early.


    Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) July 4, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    Ugh….I do not like running hills…but it sure does make flat ground that much easier huh? Good for you!


    Lynn (The Actors Diet) July 4, 2010 at 12:38 pm

    i love getting things accomplished while my dog/hubby sleep at home. i feel like superwoman!


    Faith @ LovelyAsCharged July 4, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    I’m making today a lazy day on purpose – I didn’t get in until extremely late last night, plus it’s rainy and I’m cold…three prime excuses to curl up in bed with blogs and SATC dvd’s if you ask me!


    Heather July 4, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    Happy 4th! Those pics of Murphy are just too cute!


    Arlene @ Adventures in Weight Loss July 4, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    I’m up early. Means I should take a walk, eh? I did try OOIAJ for the first time this morning. (In a bowl, minus the nuts and chia seeds). Wondering why I waited so long.


    Marina July 4, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    Aw, murphy looks so cute!
    Have a great 4th!


    Anne @ Food Loving Polar Bear July 4, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    Murphy is so cute 😀


    Kaz July 4, 2010 at 3:02 pm

    Jo July 4, 2010 at 3:05 pm

    Emilyeatsclean July 4, 2010 at 3:45 pm

    Callie July 4, 2010 at 5:56 pm

    Happy 4th of July!!! 🙂
    Murphy looks so adorable.


    CalliNae (from CookingInCambridge) July 4, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    I used to think pugs were ugly, until Murphy…

    I tried to run the other day, but the weather here is just so bizarre and there are so many tourists, I find myself doing the dangerous wiggle dance of doom down the streets of Cambridge. Guess I’ll stick to swimming.


    Morgan @ Life After Bagels July 4, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    Can I just say that your organization post from the other day totally has me feeling like re doing every closet in my house. I didn’t exactly have time for that but I did free up two shelves for me and my bf’s bike helmuts so they weren’t laying on my desk all the time. Baby steps

    Happy 4th of July!


    Laura July 5, 2010 at 12:30 am

    Murphy is the most adorable pug EVER!


    Katherine July 5, 2010 at 7:29 am

    I’m pulled a murphy and mal last night; I absolutely crashed!


    Jessica July 5, 2010 at 9:12 am

    Hope you had a really great 4th of July celebration!


    Heather July 5, 2010 at 9:16 am

    way to hit the road for a 5-miler! i’m proud 🙂
