getting ready

It's early February.  And for this year, that must'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 exactly?)

Happy Race Week to me!

Yay! I'm so jealous you get to race already but the next one will roll around before too long. And I'm so SO glad Bam is feeling so good!!!! I kinda went through the same thing with Max and we're in awe of how good he's feeling since his surgery in December - he must've been feeling lousy for a very long time. Keep up the good work!!!
