Holiday Lights Fun Run

You know what? I have no idea how far I ran tonight. This is very unusual for me. I like to know the details. I do know that I ran 29 minutes. That is all I know. The run was supposed to be either a 2 miler or a 4 miler but due to icy sidewalks and deep drifts we improvised. We literally followed the lights around downtown. If it looked pretty that is the way we ran. And you know what? It was fun.

I actually took Kona with me. I know that is often a no-no in a group run but she hadn't had a run today and she was chock full of energy. I would have had to run with her when I got home. Anywho, she did great. She ran right next to me (on a very short lead), she didn't make too many sudden lateral movements and she sat whenever we stopped, just like she is supposed too. I think she might have been showing off. We ran towards at back of the very small pack so as not to be in anyone's way. It was a rather slow run but felt great to be out and looking at the lights and the Old Market at night. We even ran by the horse drawn carriage. What a beautiful night for a run.

P.S. Apparently Kona had been good for so long that she could stand it no longer. On the ride home in the car she chewed up the little pad that was on the bottom of her crate. Oh well, could have been worse. I figured that was coming at some point. =0) And I should have known something was going on, she was awful quiet back there.

P.P.S. I didn't take any of the photos as I still can't find my stupid camera but these are actually pictures of the area we ran in. Hope that will suffice.

Looks like it as a beautiful run. Wish I could have gone.
