Cute fix

Okay so not much in the way of training updates. Wednesday, did an upperbody weight workout and this morning I went out for the scheduled 3 mile run. 3 mile runs seem like cheating and I am just getting warmed up. However, I am trying to follow the taper recommendations here!!! It was nice to sleep in a little longer and still get in the scheduled workout!!!

Here is a story I found out about on my favorite golden blog

It was so cute I thought I would share!

Dog nurses Tiger triplets at China zoo
Associated Press

BEIJING — It’s a dog’s life for three newborn tiger triplets in eastern China. The cubs, whom officials at the Jinan Paomaling Wild Animal World in Shandong province are so far just calling “One,” “Two” and “Three,” have been nursed by a dog since they were rejected by their tiger mother shortly after birth, said Paomaling manager Chen Yucai.

The trio’s adoptive mother, a mixed breed farm dog called “Huani,” is expected to nurse them for about a month or until their appetites outpace her supply, Chen said.

Chen said it is common for Chinese zoos to use surrogate dog mothers to nurse rejected tiger cubs and that Huani has nursed tigers before.

3 mile run?? Now that sounds like a taper workout. Glad you made it through the bulk of the taper unscathed, and I look foreward to hearing 'bout your race.

Looks like it's going to be a little chilly Sunday AM. I'm going with an Under Armour Heat Gear long sleeve under my Team In Training singlet. Probably some "throw away" gloves for the start as well. Good luck. I'll be watching for you to finish!
