Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! Luckily mine continues to today since we have the day off for Rosh Hashana. Lucky for Molly, this means extra attention from me! I’m watching her through Wednesday, so we have plenty of quality time together.

Yesterday I did my 20 mile training run!

I have to start off by saying how THANKFUL I am that I was able to complete the run without injury. I was very, very, VERY anxious and worried about it since I had to take a week off for my IT band, and then my left knee was hurting me as well. I said my thanks several times Sunday because I was so happy I could do it!


The run started off bright and early. They organized everyone in “flights” that were each 50 people all at a certain pace. Which meant there were multiple flights at each pace. My flight included most of my regular group that I run with every Sunday, so it was great to have some familiar faces!

The problem, however, was that many people there were not in the CARA training program, and weren’t used to running two by two or calling out when you’re passing or a bike is coming. It kind of turned into a huge mess when my group leader dropped out since his marathon is next weekend.

I started out feeling really strong, the first 5 miles were nothing. The first ten? Piece of cake. When we hit 15 my group was slowing down to near 10:30 min/miles so I broke out of the group and went ahead. I was feeling good so I was running anywhere between 9:00-9:30, although my splits were slower since I’d walk the water stops. Unfortunately, when we hit the last 3 miles it was all sun.

I. Was. Dying.

I kept up a good pace but it was rough, it felt like the longest 3 miles ever. But I finished! I was sooooo happy to cross that finish line, but then the pain set in. My legs were so tight I could barely waddle around. I found my cousin and we stretched for a bit, then headed to the buses.

The race is a point to point race, which meant we started way up north on lakeshore and ran waaaaay south past the city. They had school buses taking everyone back, and luckily it worked out well and we got out quickly and back to our car. When I got home I decided to take Molly to the DOG BEACH!!! She’d been home almost 6 hours alone so she deserved the trip. I forgot my phone in the car so I didn’t get any pictures, but it was a blast. She was having the best time running around with other dogs, and even just playing alone with her ball. She was great about sticking her face under the water, she’d lose her ball and try and search underwater for it! It was the cutest.

When we got home, we were both pooped. I tried to wash her off, and then finally showered off myself. I went to Sultan’s Market and grabbed a salad from their salad bar. It was close and I wanted salty food so I got a ton of kalamata olives, and I added sundried tomatoes, epic amounts of hummus, hearts of palm, tomatoes… and I can’t even remember. Totally hit the spot.

And don’t worry, that’s not all I ate… haha I had a Kind bar on the bus back, an egg sandwich before the dog beach, an apple with a packet of Justin’s almond butter and a serious trip to the froyo place down the street.

Molly and I were wiped, and I think she’s missing her parents, so we had a pretty relaxing rest of the day.

I spent the evening watching TV, the Blind Side was on! I love that movie, and the woman Sandra Bullock plays was also a Kappa Delta! My goal today is to actually get some schoolwork done… Haha yesterday was definitely a lazy day.


Have you ever been to a dog beach?
