The wind has been pretty rough here the last few days. I was very pleased to get a break from it today. Today's run was a little slow, partly due to some fatigue from yesterday's 8 but also because Molly was being slow and pokey - and it's very hard to run fast if you've got a 40 pound dog leashed to you that doesn't want to move faster. Yesterday's run was great; I really felt a lot more like myself. It's so funny to me ... I was nervous about taking the Clomid because of all the potential side effects, and yet not only have I not had any (well, I guess I had some hot flashes last weekend) but I'm suddenly running better than I have in months.

I wore my new running skirt today. I liked it more than I thought it would. I had thought the shorts liner (boy-short style liner instead of the brief style liner in normal running shorts) would be annoying, but it didn't creep up like I'd thought.


The best way to get Molly's attention is to have a Frisbee in your hand. She'll do just about anything if she thinks she'll get to play.

I love my Brooks running skort. I hear you on the slow dog issue. It's good that your dog can still do the runs though.

Cool!!! Thanks for the info on the skirts?

I love the one from www.skirtgoddess.com -- the shorts really stay in place nicely
