The theme of this week was doing what I could with what I had. Last week the weather was in my favor and the world was my oyster. This week, well, let's just say that Mother Nature got August temps back to average and then some. I called up my friend the treadmill and gave up my long run and got in 26 wonderful miles in return.

Today is National Dog Day so I'd like to take a moment to pay tribute to my stepdog. Neither my husband nor I ever planned to be dog owners, but a few years after the divorce my stepsons' mom got a dog "for the kids" and after a while it became clear that both the kids and the dog were happiest when they were under the same roof so...that was our path to dog ownership. And hey, all of the adults involved are very happy with this arrangement as well.
I had always accepted the story that my stepsons were told, which was that once upon a time a German Shepherd met a Black Lab and they Loved Each Other Very Much, but recently we learned that there is an official name for this kind of dog: a Sheprador. Intrigued, I did a little research, by which I mean that I read the first hit that google brought up: 7 Things You Need to Know Before Buying a German Shepherd & Lab Mix (A.K.A. Sheprador). The first thing on the list made me giggle, so I felt that I needed to write a response to the 7 things.

Fitness wise, this was a "Seinfeld" week: a week about nothing. 29.25 miles and more baby steps toward weight workouts went by, so if you're down for some running chit chat, lace up and we'll go out for a quick run around the block.
