Friday was a busy day of appointments, so no running happened, but I still felt good.
Saturday started a lot of busyness. Saturday was Henrico Humane's Bark in the Park, and I was a vendor. So, Hans and I woke up at 4:30 in the morning, loaded up the truck (in the rain), and headed out to set up. For the first time ever, Bark in the Park included a 5k, and I decided I'd also like to be a part of that. At 8:45 I left Hans to finish setting up, and I headed over to the starting line. Off I went! Half an hour later, I was crossing the finish line, then a quick change, and then time to run a booth. By the time I was back at my booth, they were announcing the results of the race, and I was in for a surprise. I placed FIRST in my age group!!! Yay!!!! The rest of the day was just wonderful. There was time with the dogs, lots of new people to meet, and a cool, sunny day.

Sunday was another busy day. We were lucky because our trainer called on Saturday to say he wouldn't be able to make it on Sunday morning. YAY! Sleep! We had a relaxing Sunday morning, and then it was time for church. After church, we had a lovely lunch out, and then we had big plans. Hans and I wanted to plant bulbs and organize our flower beds in the front yard. We gathered our bulbs and headed out. It was cold, it was threatening to rain, and we were still tired from the day before, but somehow we worked perfectly together. It was almost like we were doing a dance. He'd ready the soil, I'd plant the seeds. I'd split some of the plants that were already there, he'd spread more topsoil. It was great.
After we finished, Mom wanted to go to the state fair, so were were off again. I'll say this about the VA State Fair: Its new location means it's a lot bigger and better than it used to be, but it's not NEARLY as good as the MN State Fair. Still, though, we had a good time. All in all, we had a blast.
Yesterday, I took it fairly easy and went to bed early, but this morning I was up early again. Cody and I headed out for a nice, long run, and Hans took Rocky B (our foster) for a nice, long bike ride. Both dogs are now tired, and I'm feeling great. Now, I have to get back to work. Off to work I go!
