My girl's birthday...

I'm a proud momma... My baby girl is 6 today. She's awesome... and she brings such joy to my life. I don't know that I've ever had someone or something depend on me as much as she does, but when she gives me the love that she does day in and day out it's so worth every minute of it. It really doesn't matter if I'm having the best day of my life or if I'm pissed off at the world, she's always there, wagging her tail and showering me with kisses. She follows me around the house... even when I'm doing things she doesn't like (vacuuming for instance!). She goes to bed with me every night, snuggles right close next to me so that she's touching me at all times and wakes up with me. When I come home (even if it's from a 30 minute run), she squeals like it's the best day of her life. She's playful, lazy, curious, smart, and not so smart all in one (sometimes we can tell that she's only part lab!!) She gives great hugs! She cries when she's playing with her squeaky pig because she thinks she's hurting him when she makes him oink. She's a 35 pound full grown lab. She's such a girl... avoiding dirt, but get her near water and you can't get her out (very different than her mommy and daddy!) I'm sure I'm a bit biased, but she's an awesome dog!
It's been a good week - some good strong rides and runs! I had a 47 minute six mile run the other day and felt awesome. Yesterday I ran a 24:15 three miles and both days went out afterward and rode. I'm feeling strong, lean and so excited to race (my 10k is in two weeks and my first outdoor tri is in three weeks). It's still not quite warm enough for swimming outside so I'm alright with the tri still being a ways away... that water is going to be cold! Too bad that doesn't make me feel obligated to swim in the pool. I'm trying... but for some reason I just can't get on a schedule. I think I've swam 4 times in the last 20 days. Doesn't sound like Ironman training does it??? I love swimming... it's so calming (I'm sure that's why I'm get getting a ton better). Oh well...
