Dog Run

Allergies are a good guess for the throat crap, but consider that I live in FL, and it's essentially summer year round here -- thus, I have "seasonal" allergies all year, and I take regular drugs for 'em. No, I don't think this throat business is allergy related. Probably flu/cold related, but I'm planning on making my immune system fight it off. That. Or, I'll just drink more and hope the alcohol kills off any germs.

But sore throat or no sore throat, I wasn't missing any more running today. So, this afternoon, I strapped on the kicks and headed out into the far-too-hot-and-humid afternoon. Scooter was giving me puppy eyes before I left, so I decided to leash him up and take him along. As you know, a run with the Scooter dog is a bit erratic and always has to be cut short since he can't pace himself and is usually pooped after half a mile. So, we only did 2 miles (it was dang hot out there anyway, and when you're a dog in a fur coat, it's gotta be even hotter), and it took us 25:43 (lots of time to stop and "smell the flowers" -- literally).

After the run, I took Scooter in the shower with me (he's been smelling a bit too much like dog lately), and now he's crashed.

This evening, we're going to head out to a local bar for some Rock Band. I guess it's set up kinda like karaoke, and people can either play individual instruments or as a band, so a crew of us are gonna go check it out. Pray I don't decide after a few beers that it will be a good idea to get up on stage and sing. I wanna wake up tomorrow with some shred of my dignity, and if I'm up on stage belting out an off-key rendition of "Buddy Holly," that won't happen.

Sometimes a good run is just what the body needs! Hydrate and rest up... you will fight this off!

It sounds fun but too bad it's Monday night. I asked Ryan to scope it out for me since I am beat and I need to know how smokey it is. Good luck. Don't sing too hard!

I think I survived all of college assuming that beer kills off germs!

Bandit won't come into the shower with me, but he peaks his head in and I try to scrub off that part when he does. Sometimes he rolls around in some NASTY stuff.

You did fine tonight Jess. Its only a shame that there were not a few more groupies there that we could snort blow off of their various bodyparts.

LOL @ Scooter can't pace himself. This rock band is rocking your world lately :-)

Drink lots of water, and I might still be the only one who has faith in Airbourne. Try to get some rest rock star.

You will knock out this cold.

Well done in getting out there. I hope it isn't the flu.
