Home, Home on the Range...

We got home very late last Sunday night and were immediately thrown back into the fire - it's been one CRAZY week.  Work was just insane, we were both commuting back and forth to the office a lot, all 3 dogs had classes to attend in the evenings, and sleep went right out the window.  Somehow, I managed to get all my workouts completed and handle way too many hours of meetings at work, on less than optimal hours of sleep per night.

It all came to a head Saturday morning though, when after 8 hours of sleep, I woke up feeling like crap.  I walked and fed the dogs and then went back to bed.  I woke up again around 11:30am, ate a bit more and suddenly felt fantastic!  I'm so glad I listened to my body and took the time to rest up some more.  I nailed my workouts for the day after that!  With the completion of my long run today, I've put a solid week of training in the books - really the first big week of 2012 - and gained a little more confidence about how much I can juggle when life is truly nuts.

A few photo/video highlights...

Max and Puck doing their last run of the night at their first nose work class - success!

Some Stanley agility photos from his trial in January.  My baby dog has turned into quite the momma's boy all of a sudden.  It's awfully sweet.



Beach trip this morning!  I can't believe it's February...
 Beach dogs are happy dogs
 Max says you should never turn your back on the sea
 Puck chases a seagull
 Boy was he surprised when the wave hit him...

 He was even more surprised when he jumped off a rock and landed in a deep pool of water - first time swimming!
 WTF was that??!!


3 dog baths and a long run later, I'm all worn out and ready to watch football.  Have a great week, everyone!

Hi Molly - I love your pics. I have a quick, completely unrelated question and I'm hoping you're the right person. Are you the dog owner who once posted pics of one of your beardies with the title "The Joy of Bounce"? I had it bookmarked for many years and when my computer crashed I lost it. Do you still have it and if so, can you post it? I loved the message and I think it's a wonderful reminder of the simple things. Thanks so much! - Christy (a fellow 1/2 marathoner in the SF Bay Area)

Ooooh I would love to find that, I don't have that website anymore. I'll try to find the photos that went with that page.
