A Weekend Filled with Miles & Smiles!
I’m so sad that the weekend has come to an end because it was a really great one for me!
I ran 5 miles at the beach on Saturday morning in the most beautiful weather and listened to episode one on the Serial podcast.
The podcast is so addicting! By the end of the day I had listened to episodes 2 and 3!
On Sunday morning I woke up super early to get in my long run (11 miles) and couldn’t wait to start listening to more. If you were a fan of the Twin Peaks tv show or you like murder mysteries in general, this podcast is for you!
I ended up listening to FOUR episodes during that run! It seriously made the miles FLY BY!
After my run I had to really kick the day into high gear because Adam and I were heading over to the greyhound rescue for their holiday party and open house!
We got to meet lots of adorable greyhounds, but really we were there just to see one: Boy.
This handsome guy is called Boy because his official name when he was racing was My Boy Myth. He’s the one that stole our hearts the first time we visited the rescue a few weeks ago.
Boy ran his last race in January of this year. We believe he was retired due to injury because he has a missing toenail on one paw.
Prior to Boy’s injury he was racing well and was a 2X champion and had come in second and third place a couple of times as well. Not that any of that matters though. Adam and I are anti-racing for dogs! Although I do hope Boy will want to enter a doggie 5K or two with me 🙂 . We won’t be racing though as I don’t think I could keep up with his 40mph pace!
Adam and I got to spend about an hour and a half walking Boy and playing with him.
I tried to tell him soon his new name will be Duke and that we’re going to buy him all the best toys in the world but I think he was just happy having his ears scratched.
I really really really hope that soon his new name will be Duke (the name Adam picked out for him). We’re nervous that someone else could adopt him while we’re waiting to hear back about our appeal.
The very kind woman who runs the rescue said she would keep him “on hold” for us for a few weeks but after that … well, he deserves to go to a good home as soon as possible.
We understand that although it’s heartbreaking to think about because we can tell he’s such a good dog!
We’ve got our fingers and toes crossed that the appeal goes through FAST. We would love to have Boy (soon to be Duke) home for the holidays to complete our little family of four :).
