had to rush a bit so yeah, a good amount of running.
I ended up doing like 16km in total today because someone broke their ankle in the beginning of the brown course so I helped lead the EMTs to where he was and tried to help find a crossing for an ATV and stuff. I didn't realize i did that much but well apparently so-
It was also nice that Benny got to see so many people today, he was really happy to be pet so much and get so much attention, and being outside was great for him, too.

Chevy did great today on the hike, he better sleep well or else...
finally got to see Benny today. I can hear how his breathing is labored, kind of wheezing. When they were pumping the fluid out of his lungs they shaved his sides, but at least he won't feel too hot I guess. I'm glad he can still move though, even though he doesn't really wanna eat.

felt like crap so didn't really run much or even try. I didn't do two of the controls I was supposed to, but oh well, I'll do them on Sunday.
On the way back my mom and I got news that Benny has cancer in his spleen spread into his heart and many other places and that he's got water in his lungs. At the vet they pumped 2.5 liters of fluid out of his lungs, but that's only temporary unfortunately. They estimated that he's got at most a few weeks left, but in reality it can happen any time. I knew we would get news like this someday, but I kept on thinking that no, just a few more years, he's fine, just getting old. I can't imagine not having my brother around, but I don't want him to just live in pain. I love him.
