I was feeling kind of crabby and then this happened! Not that my being a grump had anything to do with the appearance of an egg. But still! I’m not feeling nearly as surly now! 
I’m so proud, you’d think I laid the damn thing.

This is now the second chicken in 24 hours that I have found standing on top of the six foot fence between the main yard and the dog run (where they live).

The neighbors on two sides have dogs that would almost certainly like to have chicken for dinner. These ladies are officially getting LOCKED UP until I get a chance to clip their wings.

Checking out my compression/gaiters situation for tomorrow and realizing that whichever option I choose, I’m going to be a hot mess from the knees down.
Do I go with the (very) slightly less offensive green and blue argyle or embrace it and go with the stripey pirate sleeves? And does it make a difference if I tell you that the striped ones have awesome little girly pirates on the back? Tough choices, folks.

It’s the last weekend of July which means I’ve got donkeys on the brain in a really big way. 
Here’s my favorite girl and I at our first race together last year. We had some trouble getting out of town (so many people to go see! so many scary train tracks and cracks in the road to balk at!) but once we hit the trail she ran really well. My body, on the other hand, fell apart on me that day.
Here’s hoping for a better outcome this weekend!

My super secret training plan for the summer primarily consists of chasing a small child around in large public places in the heat.
Today: Denver Botanic Garden.
