Saturday morning, Aron (runner's rambles) and her Emma girl drove down to run at Garin with me. We met at 8:00 (before the wind picked up) and introduced the dogs to each other. After things were established between the two, we let them off leash and started our run. The two of them got along quite well, although Emma lead most of the way. Considering she had never been there before, she did that quite well. Emma is probably three times bigger than Boomer but she had no trouble keeping her lead spot.
This was the third and final attempt at getting a good picture of the four of us. I fell into Aron the first time. Dogs just can't seem to learn how to look at the camera.
Emma sneaking off to see what she can find.
And, Emma coming back as soon as she hears her name. Such a good girl.
It was so nice to see Aron again. I really enjoy her company and conversation. After our run we went to Starbucks for some lattes and a couple of mini treats. Thank you Aron, for spending the morning with me. I hope we can do it more often this summer. ;)
I haven't been able to go to as many classes at the gym these past two weeks, because of my work schedule, and I miss them. This morning I went to a Step & Sculpt class. I find it challenging only because I am not familiar with the name of the movements so I have to keep an eye on the instructor. It's a good workout for the hour though and that's really what I'm after.
I am driving up to Sacramento tomorrow to have dinner at my Dad's house. It will be the first time seeing him in this kind of environment (outside of a hospital bed) in almost 20 years. I will definitely have to get a run in first thing in the morning. If I'm lucky, I will be able to go to a Pilates class too. I hope the time with my Dad goes well. I can't stay too long/late because, well, I have to drive all the way back home. I will be going up alone - both Keith and Sara have to work.
