This post is also titled “C is for Cookie” as my parents’ dog, Cookie, nearly took me out this past weekend! We visited family and had a wonderful time with the exception of the Cookie incident. Basically, I was taking in our stuff at my parents’ house when a big brown dog came up behind me. Her full weight into my leg equaled a cartoon-like spin and a landing in the flower bed. I admittedly cried like a baby. It hurt! Not to mention the whole thing really scared me when I thought it might be a more serious sprain/break problem. Thank goodness Cookie didn’t completely wipe me out for weeks! I took it easy Saturday and mostly Sunday. I ran on it today…about 3.1 miles. It was only a minor twinge around mile 2. Despite the ankle issue, we had a great time enjoying some TV, a Halloween party, an al fresco oyster roast, lots of doggy entertainment and even a Pinterest caramel apple fail.
Happy hump day! These days are going by crazy fast! It will be Christmas before we know it!
