I will be brief.
This week has sucked.
For the past 17.5 weeks I have been following the Hansons Marathon Method. If you’ve been a follower of this blog, you have been suffering along with me and enduring my weekly recaps. You’ve read Tina’s Pre-Cap. Her week has been off the rails too. Thank god we have each other. You also know that this week was FINALLY my taper. Let’s call it a micro taper, shall we? 7 Days does not a taper make. You also know that I wound up with a viral eye infection in both eyes and my contact lenses went promptly in the trash. That has been delightful. Truly. A freaking D-Lite.
What you don’t know is that work has been a total BEAST. And, as luck would have it, Drunk Otis decided to inhale a sock which promptly got lodged in his intestines, creating an emergent situation. No bueno. Thousands of dollars later, I have an 80lb giant chocolate lab wandering around with a goddamn enormous satellite dish of a cone on, and a plastic baggie containing a balled up rancid sock. It’s currently on my counter top. He just got home. He is an absolute sad sack. I am beyond relieved he is here with us. Thankfully, we brought him immediately to our vet when he started vomitting and became lethargic. Bad day for Drunk Otis.How do you prevent you dog from eating socks?
- Take all the socks in your home and throw them straight in the garbage.
- Do not replace.
Learn to embrace barefoot running. And if you get cold feet? Take a look at your bank statement. You’ll remember why you threw ’em out. Then grab your chocolate lab and make that silly fool lay on your frozen piggies.Oh yeah. And I’m going to run a marathon in two days, blind, on zero sleep. I actually think it will be more relaxing than my week. I sure hope that Hansons Magic prevails.
