Random Tuesday Rants

Happy National Dog Day! Love my pups so much. My Kona was the first running partner I ever had. The plan was always to run both of them, but my Guinness unfortunately has elbow dysplasia. They are the most loving and loyal dogs I have every had. I don't have children, so these doggies are my world. I am a dog mom and proud of it. 

This morning I had a great morning run. I decided to run in my neighborhood instead of hitting the park. It felt wonderful to run five miles. I had a pretty good pace for the first few and then picked up and broke 9:00 for the last mile.  It really helped that it was nice and cool in the morning. Once weather gets above 75 degrees my body shuts down. My optimal running weather is 60 degrees F. I can't wait until fall/winter. Did you go out running today? 


After the run I found it rather ironic that my shins started to ache considering just yesterday I blogged about shin splints. So I grabbed my ice pack from the freezer and iced them for 20 minutes. They are fine now but funny how that happened. I wasn't doing anything different, so I am going to have to keep a close eye on this.

During my run I kept thinking of my upcoming camping trip with my family. I leave Thursday and will have no internet access. It will be kinda refreshing to log off from the internet world for a few days. There are a few books that I am happy to get back to.  I am also looking forward to doing some trail running while I am there. Trail running is something I don't do often, but when I do I enjoy every second of it! The land that we camp at is my parents. They have worked really hard to build a home away from home there. It is located in Santa Veronica in Mexico. I know people think it's weird that I drive so far to go camping, but it is so relaxing there. I have been going there since I was little and have so many fond memories of this place. The following are pictures from last year's Labor Day weekend camping trip: 

Can't wait!!
