Monday runs with Nell mean I never have to sing, “I Don’t Like Mondays” (Boomtown Rats). Every run has been a new route, and today’s route I call Water and Steps. We took off towards Princess Island and I let Nell run free around a lagoon full of ducks and geese by the East Village. She bolted around the lagoon, got wet, and then raced back to me at one call of her name. Letting her sprint early on was perfect as she got that adrenaline out and we ran together at a nicer pace. Thinking of a new route, we decided to head to the Curling Club stairs. I kept her leashed and we started up the stairs. I can’t believe I used to be able to run ‘all’ these stairs. Today I decided a steady walk up was good enough and would prevent any defibrillators from being needed. All the other stair climbers smiled at Nell and we did pass one ‘young’ guy so my pride was intact. Running through St. Patrick Park, Nell and I ran up the toboggan hill – there is a fire pit at the top and then headed home. Business=2 Pee and 1 Poo.
