My Saturday

I have officially completed my first race!  Cameron and I ran the Azalea Trail Run in downtown Mobile this morning.  He completed the 10K in 57 minutes and 57 seconds.  My time for the 5K was 38:23.  Certainly not fast, but I finished!  It was such an amazing feeling to cross that finish line.  I have to admit that I had to walk some, but I expected it.  Now my next goal is to actually run an entire 5K.  Baby steps.
So after a ChickFila sandwich and a Michelob Ultra at the finish line (What?  Aren't you dying to have a beer at 9:30 in the morning after completing a run?), we headed off to enjoy a beautiful Saturday. 

First stop was Academy Sports where Cameron treated me to some new running clothes. :)  After relaxing at home for a bit, we decided to take the dogs to the dog park.  This was Hank's first visit.  He played well with others, but was oblivious to any commands to come.  He was definitely the star of the show.  I think he may actually run faster than Lola!  We had so many comments on what a beautiful dog he is and I tried hard to find an adopter, but no luck!

 When Hank starts playing, he turns into a bucking bronco.  
You can see the people to the left laughing at him!

Lola can be a brat when it comes to new dogs.  We call her a mean girl.
This poor dog just wants to play, but she wants none of it.
Then she runs off to play with her brother & sister instead.
The kids had a great time playing, but came home filthy.  
I was too late to get the picture of Hank laying right in the middle of a mud puddle.  Awesome.

After baths for the pups, we spent the rest of the afternoon sitting on the back porch enjoying the weather and these:

All in all it was a great Saturday!  Tomorrow I will be spending the day in a classroom for a veterinary CE meeting, while Cameron enjoys a day of fishing.  Not exactly fair, but he is taking me to see the Hunger Games tomorrow night!
