Treat: Cheering Tim on at the Hot Chocolate 15K yesterday. I'm so proud of him - he finished in 1:27:35 and says he's ready for a half marathon now! He's weighing his race options now and I can't wait to cheer him to the finish line again.
Trick: He let me have some of his finisher's mug, which was generous, since there wasn't much to share. His mug contained one small cup of hot cocoa, dipping chocolate, an un-ripe banana, a single apple slice, one marshmallow, three pretzels and a teeny tiny rice krispie treat. At least he got a technical sweatshirt ... because that "mug" went right in the trash.
Treat: My sister, Mandy, stopped by with her new dog, Bowie.
What a little ham. He's a 3-year-old Pomeranian who was rescued from a high-kill shelter. He doesn't quite know how to be a dog and do things like fetch, play with toys or socialize with other dogs. He's so timid that he makes Napoleon look like a jerk.
Trick: Getting two dogs to look at a camera at the same time. Not happening. Luckily, they got along, and I hope they'll be best buds someday soon.
Treat: I got a prize pack from Fake Meats for their Halloween pumpkin carving contest. It's full of a ton of tasty vegetarian and vegan treats. I can't wait to eat them all.
But, I have to pace myself, because I'm in for one final treat today: I'm headed to Girl and the Goat for dinner tonight with a friend. I've heard so many great reviews and I can't wait to try everything. My appetite is still crazy post marathon, so this will be a much appreciate culinary adventure.
