That Smell

Activity: Run

I had a few errands to do in the old neighborhood, so I decided to fit in my run at the lake since I had to be in the area anyway. I didn't punch my run because I didn't bring that much water with me, but I still had a decent, easy run. It was also GORGEOUS at the lake today. I do enjoy running at the bay, but at this time of year it's usually overcast all day (May gray/June gloom) and going just a few miles inland it's sunny and just a little bit warmer.

I spent my RRS gift certificate this week. I purchased an Adidas running skirt (in black)


and a RRS sleevles running top with a zipper pocket in the back (with berry/pink trim)
just big enough to fit 4 or 5 gels, or a full sized Ipod. I did like the way the Nike brand running skirt fit over the Adidas brand, but it cost a bit more... I wanted to get a top and make my gift certificate stretch just a little more. I wore both the skirt and top today for my run, and it's a definite thumbs up for both. Even with my runner's thighs, the inner boy shorts didn't ride up. The sizes also ran larger than normal. I normally wear a small in running shorts. The smalls were too big so I fit fine in an XS, which blew my mind. The Nike running skirt will go on my birthday wish list...

Skunk smell update:
After searching on the net, the most common remedy to rid skunk smell from my dog was this recipe:

1 pint hydrogen peroxide
1/4 cup baking soda
1 tablespoon liquid dish washing soap

Mix well and use immediately. Lather on the dog for as long as you and the dog can stand the bath. Keep mixture away from the eye area. Rinse with warm water.

IT WORKS!

Hydrogen Peroxide on a dog? Can we call your dog a "bottle blond" now?!?!?

Glad the recipe worked.

Have a great weekend!
