mommy is virtually a triathlete!

here i am on the bed in "the treehouse". (our third floor is two bedrooms. one is mommy's study and the other is a spare room.) mommy's book is on the bed with me.

according to mommy who went and walked at lunchtime, it was very hot today. i wouldn't know because i was in the house with daddy and we were staying cool. there was lots to watch out the window -- i like this weather better than rain. there were lots of trains to stalk and birds to watch.

mommy's work is doing a "virtual" triathlon where people can track what they walk/bike/swim/run. mommy is doing the walking category and she has this red clicky thing on all the time that counts her steps. (jen (edda's mommy)'s note: it's called a pedometer.) i think on her virtual triathlon blog it says that she has walked 43 miles so far. that's a very long way!!! she and daddy have joked about attatching a pedometer to us cats to see how far we walk in a day. i think we'd make that day a nap day!!! mommy's goal is 250 miles. do you think she'll make it???

My mum had one of those last year and her goal was to do 10,000 steps a day for a month. She got so frustrated when she didn't walk those steps each day!

We are back to cold and raining weather here. When is summer coming???

I watch Mom put in her walking with the dogs each day on the computer and the silly dogs drag her around 6 miles on Saturday 5 1/2 on Sunday! Then they went to agility and Mom said she ran and rain. We say Naptime is more important.
