After what seemed like a never-ending winter, we finally had a full weekend that felt like spring in Ohio. How convenient that it came just in time for Mother's Day. By the way, I hope all the mothers to human and fur babies know how much they are loved!
A month ago, I was in San Francisco (which, by the way has more dogs than children under age 18 within the city limits!) and out of the blue experienced some severe pain in my foot. I'd been training for the Rite Aid Cleveland 10K so I was a little nervous that maybe I overdid it. I was right. When we got home from our trip, I went to the doctor and found out I have cuboid syndrome, which is essentially a misalignment of the cuboid bone, and was put in a walking boot for three weeks.
Fast forward to Friday, and I finally got back to a boot-free life. First order of business was to purchase new running shoes (I went with Brooks Ravenna 5 & LOVE them!) that would help me keep any future injuries away. Second order of business was to test out the new gear, and let me just say, they are amazing.
Meanwhile, the boyfriend and I decided to start experimenting with our own little indoor garden. So far, I have one tomato plant that I got from the Market Cafe and Wine Bar for $15. I'll likely get one more this week, and we are looking to pick up a few herbs this week, among other things.
Oh, and I can't forget...we went to the Cleveland Flea this weekend. If you are in the area, I highly suggest this monthly event, which brings together local artists, designers, food trucks and more. From clothing to vintage furniture and unique art that lets you show off your city pride, there are so many treasures to be found. I will definitely be going back next month. Since it's outdoors it is dog-friendly, so I will likely take Woody with me next time.
What are your favorite activities (with or without your dog) now that the weather is warm?
I'm just a twenty-something female raising the weirdest dog I've ever met.
