I haven’t really talked much about my life outside of weight loss, running, and working out. I guess if I keep that up, it’s 1) going to get boring really fast and 2) going to get a lot harder to think of things to write about.
So I thought I’d write a little about the stuff I have upcoming. And maybe a little bit about running, and working out, too.
I’m very excited to start a new class with K-dog tonight. It’s called Treibball (started in Germany) and is essentially ball herding.
I don’t know much more about it than that your dog has to push the balls with his nose into a “pen” or “goal” and it’s timed. K-dog knows the push command already, or he did, we’ll see. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s been a long time since we’ve taken a class and I’m really looking forward to learning along with my pup. I’ll try to get some pictures. Here’s where we take classes.
Tomorrow is another BIG day for me. I’m getting my first (and possibly only) tattoo. I’m sure there will be a picture taken, so I’ll post a reveal soon. I designed the image (the artist made it look like something recognizable) and it means a lot to me. I can’t wait to show you all. I may not get a post in tomorrow, as I have a half day at work and Fridays are always busy.
This weekend will probably be a blur too, since bestie and I have a run scheduled for the morning on Saturday and then I’m meeting with a friend that I house/dog sit for every year to go over everything I’ll need to know for the week in April I’ll be staying there! Sunday I’ll be headed west about 1.5 hours to visit with another friend. She and her family just adopted another Great Dane, so K-dog and I must go over for some play time.
Less than a month til the 5K!
As an aside, you know what’s funny about running? It’s addicting. My bestie was just going along for the ride with me doing C25K (just for cardio) and was never ever going to run a 5K, because that’s for crazy people. She soon decided she would run “just this one” with me. Now she’s been emailing me all these possible races and this morning she’s calling a running store that offers beginner classes on Saturday mornings because she wants to learn about form and breathing. It’s all awesome and I’ll be right there beside her. Even though the other funny thing about running is about 10 minutes into I hate it, but when I’m done I can’t wait to do it again.
Life is pretty good, all-in-all. It’s good to have a lot going besides staring at the number on the scale!
