Well that darn foot is still bothering me. I went to the Dr on Thursday and they never called me with results, so I guess it’s ok in terms of bones. The chiro adjusted and ultrasounded it yesterday. Wrapping it seems to help but then I wake up in the middle of the night and my heel is throbbing so I have to tear it off. I must wrap it too tight. It felt ok while I ran this morning until I rolled my ankle and nearly tumbled into a parked car. It’s very irritating. I need to get it cleared up as I start long runs again this weekend. I have Race for the Cure on Saturday which will be part of my 14 miler. The weather should be great since it is unusually cool, so maybe a sub 20 is in my grasp.
Corgi #2 almost died on Sunday morning. It was my off day, so the corgis woke me up at 6 for a feeding. I stumbled to the kitchen, fed them and opened the back door. Woke up again and both were snoozing with me on the couch so I sent them outside again. As I was getting some water, I saw a couple jogging with a yellow lab. I squinted at them to see if I recognized them when suddenly a little dog came running up beside them…my dog! I ran out the front door and yelled for him to come, and, being the good boy he is, he came. But so did a car. The car was far enough away that I hoped they would stop…not stopping..not stopping….me screaming STOP! Joggers screaming NOOOO! Finally the car screeches to a stop about 4 inches from Henry. Luckily, the usually busy street was quiet, so he was able to run safely across the other lane, where I stood shaking, and directly onto our porch.
Once he got inside, I was so relieved that he was ok, that I barely remembered to scold him. Apparently the fence’s gate blew open in the middle of the night, which is kind of odd because it has a latch and a pole that goes through it. I feel very blessed that everything happened with perfect timing so that he ended up ok. I mean really…they didn’t run away while I slept from 6-7…I just happened to be looking out the window and see Henry… the car stopped JUST in time. Thank You
