After my brief hiatus from running, I am ready for my next distance race. I am scaling it back a bit and doing the Dallas Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon again this year. Not only am I running it, but I am also raising money to help my favorite dog; the Pit Bull. I am part of a great team of people who are out to spread the good word and raise awareness about the Pit Bull breed, as well as raise funds to support rescues in our area who are taking these dogs under their wings, and finding them good responsible homes!
We will be running the Dallas Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon on March 25th! We are hoping that people are at the finish line, to greet us, with their Pit Bulls ( as well as non-Bully dogs). That would be so awesome! Our team name is called Pit Bull Warriors. We are even in the works to have shirts made to wear while we run!
I’m enjoying being a part of a running group, and our long running days are always with our dogs. It’s great to get our furbabies out there for some good exercise!

It was ten days ago that I ran that 21 miles, and last week I took most of the week off from running. Well actually in comparison to all my other weeks of training, I hardly ran at all. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but just not for the best reasons. I would have taken it easy last week no matter what, but there was another reason why I didn’t run at all.
Wow okay so it has been more than a few days since I updated my blog! I did get my running in, but took it easy as far as the holiday weekend goes. The last week or so has taken off on me, due to a very hectic workload at the office, and from rescuing a sweet puppy that was at death’s door, at a local animal shelter.
Ringo my little Pit Bull mix, loves me very much; so much that he cannot stand it when I go out on my training runs, and leave him behind in his crate. I put chew toys galore in there, and he will gnaw on them like crazy, but as soon as he sees me open the door to leave, he is standing up at attention, head cocked to the side as if to say, “HEY!! Where do you think you’re going???”. As I close the door and lock it, he starts whining, barking, and yapping like crazy. He hits those high notes like a well training opera singer.
After running the Rock’n’Roll Dallas Half Marathon, I focused on taking care of Brewster, and making sure that he was as healthy and happy as possible. I still did my usual lunchtime runs, because to be honest, they gave me … Continue reading →
It only took me a couple of days, after White Rock, to consider running in the 2011 Dallas Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon. I delayed my registration due to costs, and due to all the other complications that entered my life at … Continue reading →
