National Running day for everyone.......

I guess today is National running day. I had to make sure I was full filling my duty as a runner by strapping on my running shoes and hitting the wet roads. We have had thunder storms all last night and this morning, and I am not one to run while there is lighting in the distance. But at lunch when my hubby got home, it was only raining, no thunder, so I decided to hit the road for a speedy 5 miler. It doesn't matter if it is 6am or 6 pm, Nellie is always very upset with me if I don't take her. I really didn't want to take her in the rain today, but by the time I got home, my husband said Nellie had just about lost her mind with frustration because she too, wanted to hit the wet roads on National Running day. So this is a little video of me inviting her to go for a run, after I had already run my very wet 5. So please forgive my look, this time it's not just sweat.

Oh sweet baby! I just love it when they get so excited that they start growling/howling/barking. Hope you both had a great second lap on this day.

Ha Ha! Hilarious! I have two pitbulls and they are in the office with me as I read your blog. when I played the video they stopped what they were doing and gave a little head tilt toward the computer. They walked over and tried to find the doggie that was barking on the screen. Hilarious! Dogs are so funny.

Nellie is cute!

Hi! I'm Erin said...

Hahaha, I love it when they got all worked up when they see the leash! Mine does the same thing, but imagine an 80 pound German shepherd/husky mix bouncing around the house. The really funny thing is that she gets ALL excited, runs about half a mile, and then wants to come home. Silly girl needs to learn how to pace herself.

I had an interesting National Running Day observance. Had to have my car serviced. Dropped it off and ran 9 miles to the office...which meant that later in the day, I had to run 9 miles back. I forgot that there are actually hills in Omaha!

Good job on getting it done...twice and nice job Nellie!
