Run! Zombies!

Okay, so there weren't really zombies. But, I did run over the weekend and I did a pretty darn good job. This is my third year running this 5k (3.1 miles) and I have knocked my time down 11 minutes from last year. I am super stoked about that.  I ran it in 34 minutes.

THIRTY FOUR MINUTES!!

I. Can't. Even.

The simple fact that the first year I came in at 46 mins. The second year at 45 and this year at 34 mins just blew my mind. BLEW IT! I guess all the other races I have done this year have really helped me. In all I have completed three 5k's and four 10k's (6.2 miles).

I never thought my body was capable of such things. I never thought my mind was either, but I didn't give myself enough credit. It might have taken me two years to get to this point and trust me, I started out super slow. 

I'm proud. 

I'm proud because I didn't give up even though there were so many times I really wanted to. 

There were so many times that finish line seemed too far away, too unattainable, to unrealistic. 

But, I refused to give up and it's paid off. So, I guess what I am saying is no matter what your current goal is: don't give up. 

The road isn't always easy. The reward is worth it.

Hiatus Over & Why I Was Gone So Long

I am going to sum up my hiatus with one adorable picture:

No, I wasn't just distracted by his cuteness. This little dude suffered a terrible spinal injury while being micro-chipped. No one was at fault. The accident was simply a freak accident. Tragic, but rare and totally a freak thing. Surgery was done and I can say he is recovering well. But, his healing process is a long one and I have never worked with or rehabilitated a partially paralyzed animal before. This is a first for me and I am learning so much.  My shelter is so lucky to have such an amazing and talented vet staff.

I also want to thank the human mom of Waverly McTinybeans for all her advice and taking the time to give it. I know she is a super busy lady and I appreciated every tip.

I have spoken to multiple vets, RVT's and watched every youtube video I could find to help give this guy the best physical therapy I am able. He starts acupuncture sessions next week and little by little he makes progress. His left si…

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:

I have been fostering these two adorable house panthers since they were two weeks old. At around four weeks of age I started to noticed something wrong with the little male's left eye.

I contacted my foster coordinator who had me bring him in so our in house vet could take a look at him. She was a bit baffled at what could be causing it so we tested him for various illnesses/cat diseases and they all came back negative. At four weeks old there isn't a lot we could do except wait and see what happened and how the eye developed. After another week I could tell he didn't seem to have vision in that eye and slowly the entire eye globe started to swell. Well, I woke up last Tuesday morning to this:
The vet had me bring him back in and it was apparent the eye would need to be removed. We did not know if it could be a tumor or glaucoma or what the heck the poor little dude had going on. The only issue was that he was tiny and only 1.5 lbs. Typically it isn't that great to do …
