Each summer I decide that I am going to conquer Lake Calhoun. Every summer I fail horribly.
This year I got a early start, late March ( here in Minnesota it can still snow…so that’s pretty early) decided to put on my running sneakers and take off. As I went bumbling out of the door I noticed tiny little Chi Chi eyes starting, I took that as a sign of them wanting to join me on my crazy escapade of CONQUERING Lake Calhoun.
Off we went full throttle!
There tiny little legs trotting as fast as they could. The cool crisp wind blowing through their fur, past there minature sized coat vests.
Then it happened. I stopped. I begin to think.
I’m not getting anywhere…this is too much for them….I’m gonna pass out!
They jerked abruptly and turned to look at me, I hadn’t noticed but we had completed over half of the lake. I had felt like I was running sooo slow, I had no idea we were almost done.
As I stood there observing the beauty of the lake, and all of the runners passing me by I felt a tiny tug on the leash. It was my two tiny chi’s encouraging me to keep going. So I did, I figured if these tiny little guys can get through it so can I.
I honestly can say that it was them who helped me conquer Lake Calhoun this spring, we haven’t been back… oh but when we do!
