Happy 4th of July!

It's officially the holiday weekend!!! Yeeeehaaawww!!! I love that it's a holiday and everyone will be out grilling and playing outside. I dread the plethora ("I do no theenk it means what you theenk it means.") of fireworks that will be blaring in our neighborhood until 1:00 a.m. I shouldn't complain. At least we don't have the idiots firing their guns in the air like they do in New Orleans. The fireworks FREAK poor Katie out. She just starts shaking and get so scared. It kills me because we can't comfort her but she seems to find some solice in my closet. Poor baby. So, I'm going to take them for a nice long stroll today to try and wear them out.
I skipped my run yesterday because I was a total bum. But I got up this morning and ran a slow and easy 4 miles. Tomorrow is the long run and I didn't want to overdo it before the long run. I'm still babying that knee a little. So, I'm a little hesitant to try a tempo run until maybe next week.

OK, that's it for the update now. Off to enjoy the holiday and sip my coffee.

Today I LOVE: My new Champion running shorts from Target. They are AWESOME. They're made with a low rise and a built in bloomer. I'm very short wasted and most running shorts hit me right under the boobs. It's frustrating. Not these puppies! They fit like a dream, don't bind and don't rub. I'm going back this weekend to get a few more pair!

Hoo! Had to give a shout out for the "Princess Bride" reference! Love that movie!

My dog Lucy freaks out every year on the 4th because of idiots in our neighborhood setting off illegal fireworks. I am the bitch the calls the cops every year. When the choice is between my dog's sanity and my idiot neighbors I will choose Lucy every time!
