I'm starting with the short kids because they always wind up going last. They spent a few days with their Grandma and their auntie Prada The Pug while I was in NY with Jampy. I think they had a great time, as they were POOPED when I picked them up on Sunday evening! (Me too really...)
Here they are being adorable:
Sadly, I was a bad runner this week. BAD RUNNER! I met up with Vanessa before my drive north, and got 3 miles in. But that was about it. I definitely could have found time to run in Saratoga, but I just didn't. I really wanted to be at the horse show and watch the other riders from my trainer's barn compete. And so I was a sloth. It happens. I'm taking the rest of the week/weekend off I think and will start afresh next week!
Do you remember that post where I mentioned all the virtual races I wanted to do? I know I mentioned the Stridebox one last week. I also had registered for the "Do You Believe In Magic" race. You could pick your distance, and I decided to run it in conjunction with my half a few weeks ago. My medal came in the mail while I was away. How great is this one?!
It was all horses all the time this past week! You've already read my mini-recap from the horse show, so we'll skip that part. Ducky and Rio had a lovely vacation while I was at the horse show. Monday I didn't ride because it was pouring rain, and the ring was super muddy. After five vacation days, I got on Ducky last night, and he was WILD! Can't blame him at all, but sheesh! Hopefully he's better tonight. Tomorrow I will head back up to the horse show for week 2! Here are some horsey photos from the past week:
I shall leave you with this pretty rainbow from last night:
