- Monday – Sometimes you have to miss a run for some fun. Today was a tradition. The 32nd time having breakfast at the Saratoga Race Track with a former coworker. In recent years, we have added on staying for the races. RaIn was forecast but lucky for us, not a drop fell until we were on our way home.
- Tuesday. Had to drive to Rochester for work. Took advantage of the nice weather to get a run in on the Canal.
- Wednesday – Nothing exciting happened today except for work and a long drive back afterwards. Before I left for home, I was told that there was a nearby trail. So I set out for a short 2 mile run.
- Thursday – I ran with Alyssa for our weekly run date. The Thursday night concerts had ended so we were able to run at the Corning bike path on the Hudson River.
- Friday – A scheduled rest day. Unfortunately I couldn’t enjoy it since I had to go to a wake.
- Saturday – Today I proctored the MPREs as a favor for a friend and then went for a run before the predicted rain (which didn’t arrive until evening.) I’d liked to say that the run was uneventful but it was far from that. I’ll just list a few things go that went wrong: forgot my socks, started at noon, sunshine, humidity, hunger, new route, unsavory neighborhood, missed the entrance to the trail, tired, no watch, phone died.
The good news was that there were bridges, dogs and a downhill mile.
- Sunday – A weekend would not be complete without a trip to the lake. Perfect weather. Perfect place for a rest day.
20 miles done with 4 runs and 3 rest days
- Monday – 4 mile run
- Tuesday – 4 mile run along the lake in Liverpool
- Wednesday – rest, drive home from Liverpool
- Thursday – 4 mile run with Alyssa
- Friday – rest, mah Jong
- Saturday – rest, train to NYC
- Sunday – France 8k run in NYC

Happy Running! How is your running going? What’s new with you? Please share.
Sorry to hear about your friend. Cancer sucks.
It certainly does and it’s hard to have a peer die.
So sorry to hear about Carol. That’s so tough. I could totally use some lake time about now!
It was great but I need more than one day to relax.
I’m really sorry about the loss of your friend, Carol.
Very solid week! I must admit I’m envious of your runs along the canal!
I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.
It’s one of the perks of traveling to Rochester.

It’s always hard when someone passes too soon. 😦
Cool that you got to meet another ambassador in Rochester!
I’ll be back there pretty often so we plan to meet up again
Those dogs are so fun! Wish I had some things like that to find along my runs.
A nice distraction
So sorry to hear about your friend.
That lake/relaxation day was well deserved! I’m very sorry to hear about your friend.
I love the idea of finding all of the painted dogs. What is the inspiration behind them? Do they have a purpose? To bring awareness to something, for example? It seems like Tulsa (where my sister lives) did something with pandas years ago. But, I may not be remembering that correctly! LOL.
Nipper is a big dog statue on top of an old building in Albany, NY. These small ones will be auctioned off next year, I believe, to raise money.
I’m so sorry to hear about your friend Carol.
Your runs along the canal look lovely – and I’ve totally had those runs where it feels like nothing is going right, I’ve forgotten something, I’m dehydrated,etc. I know how much that stinks! But you got the work done! Great job!
The canal is a great place to run.
I’m pretty stubborn so once I start, I usually finally no matter how awful it is.

Darlene I’m so sorry for the loss of your friend.
Those dog statues are fun – a fundraiser I’m guessing? Looking for them would make a nice distraction on a run.
Yes. They will be sold for charity. It is fun finding them. I still need to find 10 more.
I LOVE all all those dogs!!! IS it like a scavenger hunt to find them? Cool!!
I suppose. There are 20. They will be auctioned off eventually for charity.
