5 miles tempo run with Vodka

It was our first off leash run! She tried to run ahead but I kept correcting her and she learned to stay right next to me the whole time. She tried to get into the water as usual, but she was a good girl and listened to me and came back.
I love running with Vodka.

6 am 3 miles run with Lilo

I was going to go with Vodka but she wasn’t too keen and Lilo was super excited to come out with me even though she just recovered from her snow injury. I used our new safety equipments today. Lights, a little bell, new ID tag and city licence tag. Most dogs cannot be united with their owners due to lack of identification…

Day off

I lost my great grandma today.  You never get used to loose your loved ones. Experience doesn’t have anything with the feeling of a loss.
Today I wanted to celebrate her life. I replanted our little trees that were dying. Now they have new soil, new home… I want them to live against all odds, I’ll be spending all extra effort to keep them alive.

6.30 am 2 miles fun run with Vodka

I didn’t sleep well, since Ollie doesn’t read this as often I can complain about his snoring πŸ™‚ I am going to hit the road again after work for a proper  7 miles speedwork. I took Vodka out for a fun run since she loves to race! It is extra difficult to take a non blurry photo with Vodka, who is completely black & agitated and it’s freaking cold outside!

6.30 am 3 miles run with Lilo

I have to say, it was pretty hard to get up this morning. My back and arms are pretty sore from the weekend. I think my upper body strength needs to catch up with my legs.
But Lilo was really excited to go for a run, she was all smiles and galloping right behind me. It’s such a treat to have running buddies like Lilo & Vodka.

6 am 5 miles run with Lilo

We got a pretty fun run, I think she missed running together. She tried to go to the water once but I managed to catch her before she got wet.
Super cold outside, there was ice all around the ground. At least I get to see some clear blue sky now. And I get some color in my photos πŸ™‚

6 am 6 miles solo run

It’s hiking day for the girls today. And such a lovely day outside. I am sure they’re going to be covered with mud when they come back no matter what.
I wish I can film their pick up time for the hike. There is a Chihuahua in the car and 4 or 5 other big dogs scared to death from that little Chihuahua! and Lilo and Vodka as well…It’s priceless.

Day off

Happy Sundays! So nice to stay in bed even though I get up around 7.30 on my day off.
We went to Cafe Medina for brunch, if you’re in Vancouver and can make it there before 10, you’ll can have pretty yummy brunch with a Moroccan mimosa and a lavender latter. If you’re late, you have to bare the queue.

6 am 4 miles easy run with Lilo

Super windy outside. Perfect for kitesurfing πŸ™‚ I think Lilo needed this morning’s run, she was super happy smiling and galloping next to me the whole time. And the photo tells it all, a big smile on her face after we were done.
