The Little Dog That Runs

by Meghann on August 6, 2012

Good Morning, Maddie!


Are you ready to run?


What? Run? When? Now? Heck, yeah!

Maddie was a fur ball of energy this morning. I try not to take her out for runs during the summer due to the heat, but the heat and humidity were not as bad today. She was so excited and so ready to go, that I strapped the leash on her and took her for a quick 3 miles.

Maddie was on cloud 9. Her little tail was high in the air and she had no desire to stop to sniff other dogs or chase squirrels, all she wanted to do was run and she was very happy with that.

We did an out and back at a steady 9:00 min/mi pace. When we returned, she grabbed a toy and continued to burn her energy attempting to destroy it. Good dog.

While Maddie was squeaking, I did a circuit of jumping jacks, punches, push ups, high knees, and butt kicks – repeated three times at a quick pace.



  • Granola
  • Honey Nut Cheerios
  • Walnuts
  • Chobani Chocolate Yogurt (free sample)
  • Strawberries


I’m usually a fan of Chobani yogurts, but I just could not get into their new Chocolate Chunk variety. Way too sweet, and what is it with chocolate themed greek yogurts being so thin? The chocolate Oikos is the same way. I think the chocolate Chobani would be good as a smoothie addition, but not on its own.


Have you tried the new flavor? Thoughts?

Time to get this Monday started.

Have a great week everyone!
