Margaux and her precious boy Bosley. I love all these features with small running dogs! Who knew those little buggers could keep up the pace? Way to go Bosley!
|Marqaux and Bosley - they both have sweet faces.|
Tell us a little bit about your favorite running partner.
Bosley is a six-year old terrier mix. We're not exactly sure what he's mixed with, we think a miniature Schnauzer.
Where is your favorite place to run with your pooch?
My favorite place to run with Bosley is a bike trail in a nearby Forest Preserve. The path follows a creek through lots of trees and great scenery.
Have you ever raced with your dog?
I've never raced with my dog. I'm always afraid he'll be accidentally stepped on or something!
Tell us about a running moment that made you proud.
Finishing my first half marathon was a very fulfilling thing. I ran in my hometown of St. Louis through lots of hills that I didn't train for!
What important running (or life) lesson can we learn from our dogs?
To keep going. Dogs will run with you through anything; rain, snow, heat. They're just happy to be with their masters. Dogs teach us to persevere and enjoy life.
Do you want to tell us anything else about you or running with your dog?
I started my running journey with Bosley. In the mornings I started to run with him until I eventually built up enough stamina to run my first 5K in 2009.
Thanks so much to Margaux and Bosley for sharing their story with us! You can keep up with Margaux on her blog, Facebook, or Twitter. <-- Seriously, go follow her.
