Miracles, Disappointments, and Blood Lust!!

I'm going to start with Blood Lust because that is what is foremost on my mind right now.  In this situation "Blood Lust" refers to a dog that has killed a chicken and wants to kill more and more chickens.  It is said that once a dog has gotten a taste of chicken blood you can't stop them from killing more.  Hence the term "Blood Lust".  I know this seems strange but bear with me.   This is our puppy Shadow

I realize he doesn't look like a puppy but, he is not even a year old yet.   THESE
are my favorite pair of running shoes right now,( you can find them at  I usually prefer Brooks brand but these are so light weight that I adore them).  You  have to realize that during marathon training there is nothing  more important than your favorite pair of shoes.  I KNOW that I have 15 other pair of running shoes but THESE are my babies right now.  Yes, I know that soon they will have too many miles on them and they will hurt my feet and I will hate them etc..  but for now, they are perfect. 
This guy....... 

 has a taste for my favorite shoes.  He's never touched a pair of my shoes before but, the other night I left them  in the living room and he chewed a little on one, got a taste and now he won't leave them alone. "Blood Lust" I tell you!!   I love this dog but I think I might love my shoes more, at least for now. I'll let you know who wins this battle.

        I had a long day at work and I really didn't feel like running, but I did it anyway.  I am super glad that I did.  Got 5 miles in while running to Turkey Mountain and back.
So, I ran to the top of Turkey Mountain and turned around and that's when I saw it.  The most glorious rainbow I have seen in years.  I just stood there with my mouth open and stared for several minutes. This was the miracle in the title,  the disappointment is that I didn't bring my freaking phone to take a picture of it. I would have really like to posted such a wonderful and glorious sight.
   All Right-I am waiting for Larry to cook dinner and watching some Natural Geographic Wild, then off to bed.  y'all have a great night!!

When is the last time you saw a rainbow??

Does your dog do anything strange? ( I could go on for hours about ours)

How many miles did you run today!!!
