Running Peeps

One more strange thing happened last night, Shane came over and spent the night with us.  The grand peeps came too but did not spend the night.  Me and Stanley played with Jackson and had great fun!  Jackson tired us out so much that during the night Stanley rolled off the end of the bed and got stuck between the mattress and the foot board.  His body slipped through but his big ol' head was too big to keep going so his feet dangled and he was stuck.  Luckily mom and dad woke up and rescued him.  Then we all went back to sleep.

Then in the middle of the night, mom said it was 3:45 a.m. whatever that means, everyone got up and got dressed.  Then, just like mom said, me and Stanley went to the clubhouse and everyone else drove off.  They were gone a long time.  When they got back, Shane was not there and mom and dad smelled really good, like sweaty socks!  It turns out that they ran in the marathon this morning (the half marathon actually, mom says 13.1 miles is plenty).  They were very happy with their results.  My dad (1:53:46)  even got a first place award for his age division!  Mom got was is called a PR which means she ran it faster than she ever did before (2:05:52).  After mom and dad took a shower, me and Stanley went with them to the race to pick up dad's award.  There were so many people there!  Many people stopped to say how cute we are.  I just said, "Of course we are, we're Golden Doodles!"  When me and Stanley get done growing we will start running with mom and dad.  We can't wait!

13 miles!!! That's amazing! Congrats to your parents. My assistant used to run, but she never made it past 10 miles.

Your pal, Pip
