We've been to the uber-cute, uber dog-friendly Carmel before, but this was a special weekend. This weekend, I ran the Big Sur marathon. Captain and Daddy enjoyed the perfect sunny weather while Mommy got up early to take a little 26.2 mile jaunt up Highway 1 from Big Sur to Carmel...
This was my third marathon, and by far my best. I felt awesome the entire race, truly enjoyed the day, and the views were just amazing. If you are a runner, I highly recommend this race! But enough about me and my weekend, more about the Vizsla!
Our first stop in Carmel the day before the race was Carmel's wonderful, very dog-friendly beach. Captain did more than a few crazy puppy runs, he was so happy to be back at this beach.

After 26 miles of beautiful California coastline, Captain and my husband cheered me on at the finish. Captain was also pretty happy to score an entire half bagel dropped by a runner at the finish area- I'm pretty sure he swallowed the thing without even chewing, and was very pleased with himself for gulping it down ;-)

Later in the day, we were back at Carmel beach. There was a lot of this for me:
And more of this for Captain:
And my favorite part, some much-needed cuddling:
Hope you had a wonderful, exciting weekend as well!
