Long Time Running Buddy

Hi folks....sorry its been about a month since my last post. I am back running and have put 2 weeks together with a longest run of 1 hour and 10 minutes. This is great because I could not even run up until 3 weeks ago. I feel very much healed from the 50 mile ultra. Plans for future upcoming....

She was a running buddy of mine from the first time I saw her. She always wanted to test my limits and our jaunts at Euclid Creek Reservation were soul searching time. The Bride encouraged me to run with her and I always came back from our runs with a better attitude. Everything about Bailey was good. Devoted friend. Un questioned love towards me and to everyone. I ran with her until about 2-3 years ago. In the past year, her health went downhill. I always wanted her around and selfishly thought this could be the case , at least until next year. But sadly no. Two weeks ago, The Bride and I had to let her go. It was heart breaking but we feel she is in a better place.

I always think of her when I lace up the shoes. I know part of her will be scattered at the park and also in our backyard amoungst the gorgeous flowers and plants The Bride has placed.

Bailey lived nearly 15 years. She will live on in our hearts forever.

God Bless our Bailey

OH Bailey:( I'm so sorry. As the mom to 13 and 9 yo Boxer's, I know my time is nearing. Her heart is good but her legs are weak. I hate it!
