"Wonderful" - Gary Go

So today I woke up to this:

Which to this AZ girl is as close to heaven on earth as it gets.

I hurried and got my required training run done on my "ed" [treadmill]. Then I went and got my favorite neutered man, in my life.


And we went for a 2 mile run.

Well, actually he went for a 1 mile run and a 1 mile drag.   I went for a 1 mile run followed by a 1 mile bicep pull/jog.  Had a lady who was a passenger in a car role down her window and say, "well........this is the first time I've seen an owner run faster than their dog.  Way to go."  Ya.  awesome.

We arrive back at home and within 30 seconds, I see this.

Really Mase?  An ice cold bath after 2 miles?!  AZ dogs.

Lazy butt.

What I'm listening to . . . . I love this song.




Happy Hump Day!

Candice @ I Have Run said...

Love the dog in the pool. Glad you got some "nice" Arizona weather. That's one of the things I'm looking forward to when we spend Christmas down there!

We had ice on the cars this morning! ugh

Thanks for the insight on my post today. I know Army son is a great person. As the worried mom, I just want to trust that he would only chose a great person to be with. Here's praying that in the years to come, I have to eat crow because they are blissfully happy!

that is about the same routine me and my dog do...1 mile sprint...1 mile drag behind me. love how he looks so chipper pre run and not so much afterwards. too cute!

Adrienne said...

Ya, too bad I do speed work with my dog! Anytime you want to borrow him come on over. Your dog is super cute!

Tricia said...

cute pooch!

budget menu lady said...

I have a friend who has a stroller for her Shih Tzu. It was pretty embarrassing walking with her and her dog.

Leah B. said...

Haha poor dog! I bet you are loving the rain :)

abbi said...

Love that first picture of your dog! We do the same thing, drag the dogs...lazy, spoiled dogs!

Marlene said...

WOOHOO for a cloudy day and a run outside (!!!) with the pup... with some bonus strength training too!

Julie @ "Hotlegs Runner" said...

awww poor doggie! At least you run faster than your dog. Hmmm I wonder If I can out run my chihuahua? haha!

Emz said...

Shelly - thinking of you. :) I completely "get" it. trust me.

Adrienne - I'm coming over.

BML - I'm sure there is a time and place for a dog in a stroller . . . . . I just can't think of a time or a place that'd make that "ok". ;)

Hotlegs - well I can speak from experience. My Maltese can make it two miles without a hitch. He's crazy. My struggle with him is that he cannot for the life of him stay on one side. He goes right then cuts left then goes right . . .etc. I step on the dang thing every time.

Slomohusky said...

loving the rain up here in Vegas as well. keep showing off your great taste in music.

termite said...

dogs just love pools, don't they?

nice post as usual, emz.

xo

Kovas Palubinskas said...

Nothing snarky comes to mind. Glad you got off Ed and got outside.

misszippy said...

He is so darn cute! My dog is now 12--he used to be a running partner, but now, not so much. I took him for about 20 minutes worth of running the other day and we had the same scenario--me dragging him.

KC (my 140 point 6 mile journey) said...

That dog is beautiful! And smart...headed straight to the pool after. Love it!

Char said...

You're dog's so cute, so endearing, so unfit. Love the picture of him in the pool.

Emz said...

Kovas - nothing? really? Nothing? awesome.

Char - I think you've summed it up - perfectly.

Karine said...

Maybe???? you are starting to like your dogs? This made my day and yes, You Are Wonderful...love the song.

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

Now that is one smart puppy!

My dogs flatten themselves out on the cool tile floor after being outside. They can only run for about a block though!

Patrick Mahoney said...

Mase is my new favorite dog after my own of course...

Kate said...

Every time I see people running with their dogs I get jealous. I can't wait 'til I have the space for one. I need a run buddy. He's so cute!

Sarah said...

Poor guy! He acts like he was just neutered. Hahaha.

Emz said...

Jeff - awesome. Loved that.

Patrick - you want him. joke. joke. but you can have the indoor dog.

Kate - I'd borrow my neighbor's if I could. ;) Can you tell I'm not a dog lover.?! But Mase ---- he rocks. No one messes with me when I have Mase.

Sarah - and he has every day since he lost those bad boys. ;)

heather said...

Mase sure is cute, if lazy.

Glad the weather was good for an outside run...give Ed a break. It's been so cold here in the mornings I'm looking into gym membership or finding an Ed all my own.

Kelly Leigh said...

Did I miss something? Where did this dog come from? I thought u had a yappy white fur ball, not a big handsome boy. Sooo cute.

Karen R said...

See? You got your "boot" weather after all!

I love running outside. And no matter how many times you post about your treadmill miles, I will never understand how you run in place! :)

But when I am forced to do treadmill miles, I just think, "If I can have abs like Emz from treadmill miles, I'll run in place!"

Emz said...

Heather - agreed. It's my knees that hate the outside. UUUUURRRGGGG!!

Kelly - stupid pointless ball of fluff --- inside dog [maltese]
Super handsome, muscular meaty dog [pitbull-outside dog] my man. I love my "Mase-r".

Emz said...

Karen R - hilarious. Day. Made.
Still no boots buuuuuuuuuut ----- I did actually buy a sweet new black leather motorcycle jacket yesterday because it was under 90 degrees. YAY ME!!

Aimee said...

Yay for clouds!! :)

I love that song too!

Your dog is too cute!

RunningLaur said...

ha, too funny. a tired dog is a well behaved dog :)

The Kornegay Family said...

Hey, guess what? I actually went out this morning for a nice, long, wet walk . . . and I actually liked (loved) it!

Hope we have many, many more mornings like this . . . hey, one day I may even start running! :)

Emz said...

K fam - don't tease me. You know I'll sign the whole fam up if you say the word!! ;)

Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

Dog in the pool...funny. Did you jump in too? :)

Emz said...

Gracie - heck no!! It was like 74 degrees in there. Burrrrr.

Char said...

I really need to say - DON'T WRAP YOUR KIDS UP IN BLACK PLASTIC

Quinton J said...

I swear I saw your dog in a DMX video. You need to keep a leash on that puppy...he's sneaking out of the house to make music video appearances.

Gina said...

oh man, that dog is awesome.

Zaneta said...

haha! Your dog is too funny! I dont think he really wanted to go running in the first place ;) or is that his excited "I wanna go running" face? lol ;)

Johann said...

I run outside all the time but unfortunately can’t run with any of my dogs. They just don’t behave well enough for that. Love the dog in the pool!

Steel Springs said...

I love the dog in the ice bath!

JenniferLeah said...

Mase is one good looking pooch!! *pats & belly rubs for him*

Rae said...

Your dog is cute. :) Enjoy the rain!

Laura said...

Our dog was like that too but I think for him his wee brain could not wrap itself around doing the exact same thing for too long.
...and the taunting of the squirrels as we passed them didn't help.
Mase = cute.

Big Daddy Diesel said...

Dark clounds in AZ, thats rare. Did you get the 3 min pouring of a bucket rain? then it stopped?

I love the ice bath taking puppy!!! Awesome!!!!!!

Lesley @ racingitoff.com said...

That dog is on to something... that's what we should all do after a run!

Sammie Girl said...

You want a good running buddy, borrow Charlie! For the first 4 miles we go his speed (when I run with him I see a HUGE increase in my speed) after mile 4 we go my speed, anything much after mile 6 I can’t stop of he will lay down and then it is a pain to get him moving again! And trust me, if I had a pool I would never be able to get him out (he tries to climb in the tub with me!)

I do have to say, Mase is a cutie!

Dash said...

Mase is adorable! Dash is in love! We had a golden that you better make sure unleashed him at the end of the run or you would wind up in the pool with him!! LOL!

Laura said...

OMG I lOVe your dog! I have a soft spot for Pit Bulls! MY FAV breed. such sweeties :)

Matty O said...

Somehow never knew you had a dog?!?! WHAT A CUTIE! NOW we can have a puppy play date while we are racing :)

Our pups are named Frankie and Sophie. They are angels. Sometimes... and except for the two couches they destroyed, they are angels!

Colleen said...

Oh my gosh... he's such a big baby! i love it!
