My pick for Web Site of the Month is Dog Run Dog! We are having some crazy late spring like weather here in the Pacific Northwest that has me really thinking about road races for the spring, summer, and early fall! This site has all sorts of helpful information if you're looking to get started running/jogging with your dog. There's an informational blog with all sorts of helpful tips. There's a Health section that discusses some of the various things that you need to think about while running with your dogs. There are lots of helpful and fun links that you can check out, a store for various dog related stuff, and a listing of races that are promoted as dog friendly.
I took the dogs on a really nice run tonight! I believe the temperatures got into the mid 60's today and now that we've jumped ahead an hour (as much as I hate losing that hour!), we have day light longer! It was just a great night for a run and I really love that we can see on-coming things like idiots on bicycles who think it's a great idea to completely ignore the generous bike lane along one stretch of our route, in favor of riding on the sidewalk. I am not a fan of stupidity and I did NOT budge on the sidewalk. Considering that the dogs and I take up the entire width of that stretch of sidewalk, it was incredibly difficult for the "intellectually challenged" cyclist (I use the term loosely) to get around us without going into the bike lane. Heaven forbid!! Otherwise, it was a lovely night.:o) And it got me really pumped up for the upcoming road race season. Since I completely missed out last year due to conformation conflicts and a stress fracture during the peak season, I'm looking forward to at least a few 5K's this summer with the dogs. I'm not entirely sure what the season will hold for me triathlon wise. I have a feeling that the only race I may possible enter is going to be one of the Hagg Lake races and certainly no olympic distances this year either. I'm just not as psyched about triathlons as I used to be. It also doesn't hurt that the price of entries has sky rocketed to a ridiculous amount!
Hmmmm....I do seem to be rambling just a wee bit.;) I hope everyone is having a lovely night and I'm off to torment my unsuspecting pooches!!
