HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!
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!
