A dog, hands down, is the best running partner. I rotate between Gracie, my puppy nephew Gunner and Jonathan's dog Magglio, but really any dog will do!
Top 5 reasons a dog is the best running partner:
1.) They don't judge you for the pace your running, they just enjoy the run however fast....or slow!
2.) If you need to stop they don't tell you your slacking, they enjoy the rest ...your really walking because the dog is tired anyway right? :)
3.) When you're running you don't have to worry what they are thinking they are happy regardless if you take the long way or the short way back home.
4.) When you are not sure you really want to go for that run, looking at your pup and seeing how excited they get when they see their leash gives you the extra push to get out the door.
5.) When you are on your last leg home and wanna get that extra push your pup always has that extra burst of speed and encourages you to sprint it all the way in!
So go get a dog and go for a run!

Mothers day was more of a Mother's Weekend for my mom. Saturday we had the Walk in Detroit and Sunday was my Alumni game. My mom came to the game and had lots of fun catching up with the other moms. My dad made a delicious rib dinner and Natalie and John came over, even Jonathan was there too! And after dinner Jonathan gave my dad a lesson in pool :) For a present I am buying my mom potted flowers for the front of the house with my first paycheck. My dad even let me take his Corvette to the Alumni game! All in all it was a great day! Love you mom!
Sunday we had our annual Foley Soccer Alumni Game! Some people have mixed feelings about lacing the ol' cleats up again after "X" many years away from the game and choose not to come. For me, even though I haven't played since last years alumni game I LOVE coming back to play. I have so many great memories from Foley Soccer and just being there makes me think of all the great times I had, not to mention the 3 State Championships :) This year we had a great turn out (compared to years past) 12 alumni come and hopefully more will come each year. The alumni, still steller, won the game 6-1! Current team mom's had food for us after the game and it ended up being a really great time, full of " Do you remember when's!?!" & "What are you doing now?!?" Thanks to everyone that came hope to see you all next year too!
This past weekend we did a walk to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. My team and I raised almost $700! The walk started @ Comerica Park went all the way down Woodward to the water front then back up to inside Comerica Park. It was a gorgeous day the clouds parted and the sun came out just as we made our way to Detroit! A lot of people came out to show their support and it really was an amazing day! Thank you to everyone who donated and showed their support it was truly a perfect day!
