A Dixie and Cracker Dog early morning walk/run

No running today. I'm tired from the weekend activities and decided to take the dogs for a little 2 mile walk/run along the Rillito River path. Apparently, Dixie and Cracker are not aware that you are supposed to look at the camera when getting your picture taken!

Dixie will be going up to Silverton, Colorado with Kenny in June for the summer. I'll have Cracker to keep me company (and Yentyl, our 14+ year old blue heeler). Cracker enjoyed running a little bit, so I may take her on some smaller walk/runs in the future.
I've been eating non-stop since the Zane Grey race! Starting today (isn't it always 'starting today'?) I'm going to try and watch what I eat (and how much!) to stay healthy until the Red Mountain 50k. I don't think nutrition is everything where running is concerned, but it is important. I love sugar, and that is my downfall! I work in an office where someone is always bringing in something super sugary and fattening. I'll be focusing on eating more fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, beans, lean meat, soy products and yoghurt. Of course, I'll never give up my dark chocolate-covered edamame!
Sweet isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes I can't believe I have such a sweet life.

I can't wait to get back into running again so I don't have to worry so much about what I eat! :) You mentioned the Ghost Town 38.5....I've had my eye on that one too. You'd have no problem squeezing it in. : )
