I know. Not even a week, and I'm already reenacting an ugly race pic. Well, this one is of my sometimes running partner, who I am unable to get an ugly race pic of as I am dragged/dragging her along the zoo run route when it's about 100 degrees (you try that with 52 pounds of sheer muscle on a leash). Anyway, this is pretty much what the race pic would look like at 1.5 miles:

Okay, she's not so ugly. But she has gotten into a bad habit of licking frogs in the yard at night. If that makes her run faster, I may try it, too, but I'm pretty sure it won't work. http://www.eopoint.com/wiki/index.php/Froglicking
So far, it just makes her wipe her tongue with muddy paws and bury her head in the (kiddie) pool and blow bubbles - but then, I've been like that after many races (and some weekends).
