Hi everyone! These past couple of weeks have been a little busy for both Blanca and I. Blanca continues her work and her studies. I continue to learn a new trade working with my father. Blanca has always begged me to buy her a dog. I promised we would get her one once we had our home. I honestly thought that would be quite a long time. Well I had to keep my promise and we went to Humane Society. I honestly do not know how it happened but we ended up with two pups. We were able to take them home the following day because they had to be spayed and neutered.
Allow me to introduce to you Chip and Belle.
As you can see in the above pictures Belle is so comfortable she falls asleep while Chip is crying all the way home.
From a family of two to a family of four.
That weekend we had a 10 mile run with our run group. It rained pretty hard the night before making some of the route a bit muddy. We conquered it ! When we arrived at our starting spot we heard more good news. Downtown Run Group also known as D.R.G. is officially a trademark.
This is something that should definitely be celebrated. I am very proud to be a part of D.R.G. This is why I love my Downtown Run Group.
The following week I was able to sign the sign. What is sign the sign? We get to sign our D.R.G. sign after attending nine training days and you get a D.R.G car magnet. You can only sign you’re first name. If you attend a total of 18 times you can sig you’re last name as well. By tradition after signing you pose with the sign.
I was able to sign on a Tuesday evening run at the zoo. On Thursday Blanca and I joined some of our training partners at a local high school for some speed work. I have never set any days aside for speed. I am so glad that it has been implemented for the first time.
This is why I really appreciate everything D.R.G. does for Blanca and I. It has helped transform many lives and boost a lot of confidence.
I hope everyone has a blessed week. Even though Blanca and I are sometimes very tired we are thankful to our Lord and Savior for his many blessings. Thank you for visiting. As always
Eighteen days left!!!! Blanca and I decided to wake up early yesterday and go for a long run downtown. When we woke up it was pretty darn chilly outside we decided to do the dreadful treadmill. Yes sir the boring treadmill. I figured I would try hard to run 13.1 miles in about 1:50-1:52:00 and Blanca was just going for a long run until she got tired.
You have no idea how much I dislike running on the treadmill!! Sometimes this is my only option so I deal with it. This particular treadmill only gives you one hour of running. So I decided to go for seven miles within that hour then grab some water and complete the last seven. I didn’t realize I set the treadmill to only run for 47 minutes until the end.
This morning Blanca and I decided to go visit running shoe stores for fun. Well I was searching for a pair of running gloves which I did find for $12.00 from New Blance. Now Blanca who was not looking for anything was fortunate she came upon a sweet pair of Saucony Mirage 4 worth about $120.00 on sale for $50.00.
Anyways I hope everyone has a great day and God Bless!!
