It's early February. And for this year, that must mean....it's time to get ready for a race!
Now, I use the term race loosely here. This is not one of my big races for the year, more like a good, tough training day. Some attempts at speedy running and hauling my butt up some hills on my bike. It's been a while since I've done that for sure. Time to tackle the "3 Bears Du." So far the weather is looking good, projected as partly cloudy with a high of 63. Nice.
And a quick update on my little monster.....
She's *quite* happy without her spleen, thankyouverymuch. Doesn't seem to miss it a bit. Her appetite is good (a little *too* good). The 'regulars' on our walk route are amazed at how well she's doing. It's like she's a new dog. She's got pep in her step! And in what has to be a coincidence, she has been doing well with her neck issues/limping and hasn't had to go back for acupuncture since right before her spleen came out. I have the feeling that what I attributed to 'she's just getting older' was really that she wasn't feeling so good. And now, we take every day as a gift and she just gets spoiled rotten. (And that's different from before......how exactly?)
Happy Race Week to me!
