Runnin' with the dogs.

So, last night I had either a UTI or a kidney stone. It was not fun. It hurt like crap, but this morning after drinking TONS of water, taking medicine, and some sleep I feel really good. I was going to do only 4 miles, but I ended up going 5 (kinda).

I took Dusty (Gma Twitchell's dog) on my run. She's never been running before, so we weren't quite sure what to expect. I had her leash wrapped around my wrist to start. After the first 1/2 mile she got the idea and realized that I wasn't going to be stopping anytime soon. After I saw she wasn't pulling anymore I took her leash and wrapped it around my waist to finish the run. She stuck by my side and kept running. When I'd slow down she'd start to pull me some, kinda like she was saying, "Come on, you can't slow down...". I ran for 3 miles, came to the house, dropped off my camera, went potty, and ran with Dusty for the last mile. After that I went in and got the kids and then took them to the playground. I counted the walk to the playground as my last mile. The run was good, I'm glad I was able to do it without problems.

I'm feeling 100% better. I keep drinking TONS of water. I'm sure I'll be just fine for tomorrow's 6 miler. I'm thinking I'll run tomorrow morning rather than in the late afternoon like today. I just feel so much better when I get my runs in early.

I've been doing well eating even with all the pecan pie cheesecake left over from last night. Mmmmm!
