Morning Run

Tibby and I joined my Mom's running group this morning.  Yeah....at 4:30am.  I worked until 11:30pm last night, but surprisingly wasn't tired when the alarm went off.  Too excited about running for the first time since this fun night.

Tibetan mind control - "You will pick up my leash.  Ooooo leeeash.  Noooow."

Running + cheap camera + foggy + dark = interesting pictures



Tibby with curly hair from the humidity and the wind.

She is a little damp. :)

The other runners in our group.  There were 4 of us, but one person left early.
On the left is my Mom and on the right is her friend L. and Lucy.  Remember Lucy?

Tibby and me.

"Ahh that's refreshing."

Crazy double exposure.  Open eye, closed eye.

It was fun.  Tibby doesn't really run.  She just walks quickly.  Yes, my dog can walk faster than I can run.  But she has 4 feet!  Unfair advantage!  I want to do it again on Thurs.  I'm 'training' for a race on Sat.  It's a family tradition to run in the race. It is my tradition to procrastinate until the last week and then run a couple times before race day.
I was planning on stopping at the park on our way home to do some training with the pup, but Tibby was really thirsty and it was so wet outside we would have been soaked in seconds, so we'll try to go later.  I even packed a bag with treats and a jump last night, so I would be ready to go to the park.  Hopefully it doesn't start to rain this afternoon.
Well, now I have to go join Tibby in an after run nap.  I'm starting to feel a little tired.

Sounds like a lot of fun. I need to get back into running, but the heat of the summer is very discouraging for it.

Molly - yeah Tibby LOVES it! She gets so excited when she thinks we are going for a run.

K-Koira - I know what you mean. If I didn't have my Mom's group to run with I would never do it. Even at 4:30 it wasn't too cold and it warms up so quickly....and the humidity- Yuck!
