I truly enjoyed being on the road again. I missed our travels. Mikey is finally able to step away from a work project he's been on for more than a year and a half, so we have more trips planned for the rest of the year. In fact we just got back from a long weekend near the Canadian border.
Also, this was Winston's first trip after we officially retired him from running. The 13-year-old could still put in the miles, but he was consistently gimpy. He's taking the change much better than I, but at least I have Tully. And Tully has gotten soooooo much better at single track. He used to fall back hard if no other dog was with us on dirt. Winston was his big motivator. I was thrilled he ran that 9-miler at Cape Lookout without any protesting!
