This is going to be a super quick post today. I may be a little MIA this week, I am taking care of Sasha on my own this week so my hands are going to be full! I plan on working on her incessant barking while she is all mine for the week so we can surprise Bren with her new good behavior. The weekend went by too fast as usual. Friday night I did nothing and it was glorious. Saturday I hung out with the boy, did some puppy training, and made some KILLER bison burgers.Sunday I started out the day with a 13 mile long run with Sarah P. We went with out tunes and chatted the entire way. I never run with people so the chatting winded me significantly and we finished in 2 hours at about a 9:20 pace, it was nice and relaxed pace. Sarah was in town to help a friend move so I took her on my favorite trail, then went to the Teddy Roosevelt island for a mile of trails, and then into Georgetown and back. I could tell that I was definitely the one setting the pace (aka she is a bit speedier than I am) but I was really excited around mile 10 when she commented she had finally hit here wall. I guess you could say misery enjoys company : ) As a bonus to the company the weather was perfect! I came up with a new brilliant way to get my watched synched up before heading outside. Attach it to the balcony duh.After the run I went with Bren to walk and play with Sasha for a bit. Next up was helping one of my best friends move and finally we landed at a delicious Mexican restaurant and chowed on some appetizers. On our way to dinner we saw this SWEET car and I had to take a picture to share.After dinner I reacquainted myself with my crockpot and made some pulled pork. In the pot went a 2.5lb frozen pork sirloin, 2 cups beef stock, 5 small carrots, and 1 medium sweet onion. I sprinkled everything with some honey bbq spice I have and then cooked on low for 10 hours. This morning I mixed it with 3/4 of a bottle of bbq sauce.When it comes to picking a bottled bbq just read the ingredients. If the first one is high fructose corn syrup don’t buy it. The one I got had some brown sugar in it but I don’t mind right now. It is awesome and has all natural ingredients! Breakfast this morning was a little bit of pulled pork, eggs, and avocado, YUM!
Q: Any tips for my first week of living alone with a dog??
