Aside from the everyday life excitement, Athena and I have decided to sign up for a 2.5 mile run (you may as well call it a marathon) being held in May (well, Athena doesn't actually have a choice...I signed her up)! I am no runner, so 2.5 miles is going to be quite the challenge. I actually hate running and would never consider it something to do for fun, but alas, my friend somehow talked me into doing a run with her. We decided to commit to the Oregon Humane Society's Doggie Dash being held on May 11th.

This means that Miss Athena is in training. Unlike her mother, Athena is actually quite the runner. She takes after her dad who happens to be a track champion. Athena's goal is to learn how to jog with me rather than sprint the entire 2.5 mile race.

Wish us luck as Athena and I train for our
