First Female

100_0017

It must be the greyhound genes. Today, in her mile run for the physical fitness test, Superpounce, formerly known as the puppy, was AWESOME.

Last year, I had to coax and cajole just to keep her from walking. She still did about 9 minutes to the mile. This year, even while I was away at the doctor, she was . . .

FIRST FEMALE!!!!!!! WOOOOO HOOOOOOOO!!!!

If I can't beat you, Nytro, then you shall be accursed. My seed shall be your nemesis.

SUPERPOUNCE RULES!

Not that I am competitive or anything.

In related news, Mrs. Greyhound, who loathes running even more than Nytro, did the mile and found that it wasn't too bad. Maybe I've got some new training partners in the works.

Great job on the improvement and being first!

And you can let your wife know that hatred of running doesn't have to keep you out of the mix. I can't stand running, but I still completed four marathons.

It's all about the mental disorder, um, I mean attitude.

Oh yea baby, way to go Superpounce! Now, regarding hope, does it kill you to know that it's going to be 60 and sunny here in the artic north today and tomorrow-building your arc yet? I hear the ice caps coming. Looks like you've got some good running in, I assume that means the neck is better- yea! Have a wonderful day of thanksgiving.

I love the way Superpounce is looking at the camera, but her rival in the background is shooting lightning bolts from her eyes...ha ha ha ha!

she's a cutie! Your person, that is. A chip off the ol' block! That feels so good doesnt it?

Nytro said...

ahem... all props to the pup, but i gotta wonder: with your "genes" in her, would she actually be able to compete against the Nytro? or would she overtrain and hurt her po widdow neck?

she looks tough, but then again, so did you.

;)

Yay for Superpounce - she runs like a Greyhound. And congrats to Mrs. Greyhound.

Thanks for the SOMA schwag. I found it rather amusing.
