Canine Classic 5k

Cracker Dog's first 5k. She did so well. We ran 3.2 miles (supposed to be 3.1), which was 3 laps of the course. Some people and their dogs did one lap, but not the Crackinator! She ran the whole thing. It was about 95 degrees out, although it didn't start until 6:45pm. It was quite crazy at the start of the race (dogs and people everywhere!), but Cracker immediately knew we were !!!!running!!!!! Yay!!!!!! I'm not sure if this picture is blurry because she is so fast or because we were running... Man, she had fun. She did it in 36:32. (11:23 min/mile average). We stopped at almost all the water stops on each lap, too!

There was a doggie fashion show and talent show. Cracker's only real talent is her ability to sleep all day on the sleep number bed, but she does have the cutest pink camouflage rain jacket that would have stolen the fashion show. Maybe next year. :)
Here are a few of the dogs at the fashion show:

This was a great event. Can't beat it for $20. Got a cute little scarf, too.

So, I got in 18.2 miles today and just about exactly 40 miles for the week.
