Of Dogs and Ducks

I'm coming down from the spring marathon high I've been on for the last few weeks. It's somewhat comforting to know that I don't have another marathon until the fall. But then again, it's also somewhat depressing. It's been my focus for so long now that I feel a little blurry without a near-term goal. I would like to say that I will now take a few weeks off to rest my leg which has been hurting since December but I think we know each other better than that. I do want to take some time off but am not sure how to do it.

I have a Dachshund. I think I've said that before. Well we found out about a documentary about Dachschund racing that was showing at the Oklahoma City Art museum and just had to go. I mean look at that picture! It's so cute! OMG it was awesome! Sooo funny to see these people taking their little dogs so serious. It was a riot.

While I was leaving the theater I saw a duck nesting on the sidewalk in downtown OKC. At first I thought that was weird, then I realized that the poor thing was homeless and living on the streets. I think this is a sign of just how bad things have gotten, homeless ducks living on the mean streets of Oklahoma City. Maybe we should start a charity...

Thanks for listening

You didn't rescue the duck? I would have taken it to the pretty lake you have!! Willie go back and rescue the duck.

Urban duck probably doesn't need rescuing. He's probably just day tripping. :D Seriously - I think they're pretty good at finding their way back to the lake. The movie poster was GREAT! I didn't know about your dog - so that was fun to read. You should post a picture for me!
And finally - your poor leg! Hurting since December with no time off. Even running machines need a break Willie! (I thought your leg was better and that's why you hadn't taken more time off. I didn't know it was still bothering you!) Please take care of yourself.

Hoo! That movie poster is AWESOME! I love doxies. My first two dogs as a child were doxies. Hysterical little guys. Very BIG personalities!

You are such a doll for your "Got get 'em" comment. I seriously doubt i will improve my time on this course since it is much tougher., but I am hoping to do it under 5:30 (OMG! RBR posting a goal time, in public no less?! Are the oceans boiling?)
