Exciting times in the ALB household...or not

Well, nothing exciting is going on with us. Our Christmas tree is still up, our dogs are still nuts, and we are still running.

Sunday, D decided to join me and Guinness for our run. After I showed him the 3 mile route, wrote down half the route's directions for him, and told him the rest of the route, we set out. He was about a block ahead of me for about 2 miles. But then he decided to do his own thing. So I don't know where he went. He went about 4.5 miles.

Guinness and I ran the prison route. She had fun. She hit puddles, and got to bark a lot. A lot of potty breaks. But her walk was good. My run...it was long. I have no idea how long I ran, because I messed up the timing on the Garmin, because I walked Porter before the run, but never looked at my time or reset it. So oh well. We also walked so total was 5.17 miles in 94 minutes.

Today I was going to work late, but lost motivation. So I came home. D was already dressed for our 3 miler, so off to the track we went. My time is getting better (back to where it was). And I am a total nerd. Who runs and thinks, I'm 1/12 of the way done. What other numbers don't go in to 12? What about 24? and so on and so forth. So exciting. I did try to remember the Bell's beer that I like. They might distribute in GA, so I am excited. I will have to find my beer notes (another sign that I'm a nerd...I note my beers).

OK so the results...

LOL! I still have our window Christmas lights ups. It's such a PITA to take them down. I don't blame you for letting the Christmas stuff sit for awhile hehe

Take down that tree! LOL

I'm a math geek, too. I'm 1/10th of the way done. I'm 1/9th of the way done... etc.

I came acrossed your site via Nitmos, and noticed you have a dog named Guinness! What kind of dog??

I will, I promise, some day own a Newfoundland named Guinness. I will call him "Gus" for short. It is a dream of mine.

I just need to get out of the apt we live in at the moment.

I have yet to master running & thinking. Now, I can walk & think, but put running in the picture and I can hardly think. I just count in my head. 1,2,3,4,5,etc. :)

My solution to taking the Christmas stuff down this year... I didn't put it up. :) I know, I know... what a slacker. But, I just wasn't in the mood to find the weekend for set up and take down. Next year, I promise, I will do it.

Good job on the running!
