I'm Amanda - I live in the Philadelphia area with my boyfriend, our corgi Tucker and our 2 cats Smooshie and Kitters. This is my first dog since I was a little kid and I am loving every minute of it so far.
Welsh Corgi Breeder?
About My Corgi(s):
Tucker is so much fun! He is a lover and enjoys snuggling and soaking up affection. He is also very playful - and wants to be friends with everyone he meets canine, feline or human. He even gave kisses to my nieces bunny. He has settled in and is feeling at home wtih us. We love having him as part of the family.
Oh.. I thought your 5K is on Dec 13. I just don't know if I could log on mycorgi.com this weekend so I just left a message in advance :-) I am proud of you and Tucker doing 3 miles!! Good luck again.
Jeter will graduate obedience class tomorrow. He is doing great. He got new snow boots, liners(socks for the boots), and waterproof winter coats. To my surprise, he loves to wear them!! These snowy days in Chicago, he has been a happy goofy corgi playing in the snow :-)
I just want to say hello and let you know I finished the Chicago marathon. I was doing pretty good until I had some ankle problem at 16 miles. So I crossed the finish line later than my goal time but I was glad I didn't quit.
Thank you for your kind comment, Amanda.
It was 2007 Chicago marathon that made me think about running. It was a really hot day. I was covering the marathon (I am a Chicago correspondent for a Korean news agency) and saw an old Korean couple running together. After the race I talked to them and found out husband is in his 70s and wife is in her mid 60s. They started running about 9 year ago. They were my inspiration. At least I started younger age than them :-) My husband Andrew has some ankle problem but he started walking and finished 5 K walk. We hope someday we can finish half or full marathon together.
My half marathons and my 1st marathon, I ran and walked. Like I said I am slow(yes, I am penguin runner) and especially last year I was sick and got surgery so I couldn't train myself enough but just wanted to feel that big event atmosphere. This year I will be back of the pack again but I don't care. I will just enjoy the fact that I can run(and walk) and hopefully being the finisher :-)
If you run the races, you will love that. I will never forget my first race. I was the 2nd from the last but that was one of the best feeling I ever had in my life.
Thank you Amanda, I am a new runner too. I started to run last year and yes, I did follow couch to 5 K program :-) I am slow but proud of myself being a runner. I finished 2 half marathons and going to run my 2nd Chicago marathon on Oct 11. I always want to run with my dog but Jeter is too fast for me haha.
Say hello to Tucker. He is such a cutie!!
