Dog Tired

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

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! 😎



  1. 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! 🙂


  2. 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 😉

  3. 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!

  4. 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. 🙂

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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!
