This week, we haven't had too many adventures since we've been trying to get back into our school year routine, but we did manage a couple walks at the State Park after work.
|Hey, aren't you supposed to be hopping away now?|

|Duck butts always make me smile.|
Going to the State Park gave us a nice trail where we could easily get in our daily 3 miles in one shot and just relax alongside Lake Erie.
Yesterday, we got a quick walk down to the park near our house--where we were surprised to see so many crunchy leaves on the ground already! Fall is in the air!
After our walk, my friend came over so we could go celebrate surviving the first week of classes with a $1.99 margarita at our favorite Mexican restaurant. Since it was still light out when dinner was over, we went back home and took Barley for a little stroll around the neighborhood--so I can feel a little less guilty about the massive plate of nachos I demolished.
Our walk last night put us at 93.55 miles for August (which I think is pretty darn good considering we went on 2 road trips and I went back to work!) and at 712.11 miles (or 71% of our goal) for the year!
According to my Garmin Dashboard, we have 124 days left (including today) to meet our goal. We've got 287.89 miles left, which means we need to get about 2.32 miles a day for the rest of the year. We're still going to shoot for 3+ a day, but it's nice to know if we can't squeeze in that many miles every day, it won't hold us back! This goal is looking more and more manageable by the day!
Happy FitDog Friday! Hope everyone else has been managing to have a Fit Week, especially those of you who have also had to go back to school!
