I'm a Terrible Daddy!

shes a little bit older than this now (3 years to be exact).
have to admit i'm a terrible daddy.
i bought her to run with but alas often things conspire to keep us apart.
the main problem is her sister (a 6kg bichon frise) frets when she leaves the backyard and basically goes nuts (and therefore drives the neighbours nuts) if i only take the husky.
so basically i need TOH to be home to entertain the little one and of course the weather to be relatively cool.

so basically she doesnt run with me often.
and when i do take her for a run its 14km on little training.
and most recently with 4kg of extra baggage on return from the kennel (she likes the kennel food!!).
i think the ultimate slap in the face was when someone thought she was a malamute.
shes a husky u fool!
i think we need to go on a husky diet.
so we had a bit of a struggle yesterday with our walk/run.
poor thing!
still had a smile on her face at the end tho.

have been thinking about glasshouse and i will run the 100 miler if i can avoid illness (kinda difficult at the moment up here!) and injury.
i'm not doing as big mileage as in 2003 but i figure i'm a bit more trail savvy and have a better 'base'.
felt like wednesdays 3.5hr night run up there was 'just a little trot' so should be fit enough.
have arranged a crew and even a pacer depending on a few things (noteably if the melbourne storm play a saturday or sunday final - peoples priorities sheeeeeeesh! ;))
like my colleagues at work have tried to perfect the 'no touch' patient examination technique with anyone who could have anything contagious :)
the narky calf is settling.

Hey, thanks for the blog comment :) Always nice to know other people can understand the hair-tearing frustrations I've been feeling.

Your husky is adorable!

Re Duffman at C2S, this is from the results ....

"Well done Aidan on completing the 2007 Sun-Herald City2Surf. You were 262nd over the line with a time of 53:36"

I'm sure the cape cost him a couple of minutes. As did the undies on the outside of his tights.
