And Ryder gets to be a real snow dog
It’s not too often we get a bunch of snow, so when this big storm came through I knew I had to dress Ryder up as a proper snow dog! He was originally going to be an elf for these December pics, but a combination of his elf costume that I ordered being too big by an order of magnitude and this recent snow means a holiday-styled snow dog, yay! But first we’ll look back at November’s goals.
Officially my first road marathon!
I SURVIVED MY FIRST ROAD MARATHON!! (Actually, at this point hopefully I will have survived my first AND second road marathon, since it looks like I’m running RDC too.) (Also, duh, we knew I’d survive my first marathon, since I’d already survived my first ultramarathon. Whoops.
And Ryder pretends to be a lumberjack.
When I was a little kid I thought my dad was a lumberjack. He looked just like one! He had a big full beard and he wore plaid shirts and work denim and he’d split and haul firewood for our wood fireplace. With his sharp axe he was the rugged spitting image of a lumberjack, and yet I never understood why, when I told him he looked like a lumberjack, he’d immediately start singing Monty Python.
Now, to this day, I can’t hear the word “lumberjack” without that song playing in my head. I should probably move on to more sensitive comedy sketch songs, but nope, I think that one is going to be with me my whole life - for better or for worse.
To celebrate the release of the new Saucony Guide ISO 2 and Saucony Triumph ISO 5 running shoes, Saucony and Fleet Feet Carrboro hosted a demo event at one of the weekly Fleet Feet/Vecino Brewing Co. pub run events
It’s always fun to try out something new - new shoes, a new running group, a new running route - and it’s especially fun to have that documented! A couple weeks ago Saucony and Fleet Feet Carrboro hosted a demo event of the new Saucony Guide ISO 2 and the Triumph ISO 5 in conjunction with the regular Wednesday night pub run and half/full marathon training program run.
And Ryder parties with some pineapples.
“Ughhhh I’m so behind on my goals posts,” I lamented to my best friend recently.
“Liz!! Those are my favorite ones!”
“What, the goals posts?!”
“Well dang. Now I feel guilty that I haven’t been posting them.”
So yeah! Here’s a goals post. Finally.
