IT'S DOG WEEK! Furry Feature: Meet Adriana and JayJay

Welcome to the final day of the Running with Ollie blog DOG WEEK! It's been one great week. I was in San Diego enjoying the sun and surf, and in an attempt to keep you entertained while I was away, I've been sharing daily Furry Futures. There were so many great running dogs (and their humans) featured this week. This was probably the cutest week in Running with Ollie history! I hope you've been following along and enjoying dog week. If you've missed any, you can catch up on Furry Features here. Although today is last day of dog week, I'll continue to do monthly Friday Furry Features, so stay tuned for more four-legged furry running partners. 

Today we are featuring Adriana and JayJay from Latina and Triing

Hi, Adriana, Tell us a little bit about your favorite running partner.
Her name is JayJay. She is a black lab we (hubby and I) rescued last year after having to put down her sister Anise.

Where is your favorite place to run with your pooch?
We run around the trails at home.

Have you ever raced with your dog? 
Yes. We have done Friends of the River 4mile run and the DFW lab rescue 5K twice.

Tell us about a running moment that made you proud.
Running in general. I don't come from a working out background. Starting to run was painful and started motivated to run with Anise a few years ago. Now have completed multiples 5k, 10k, 3x13.1, 3x70.3 (Tri) and 2x140.6. With a few sprint and Olympic distances in between. So I'm proud of accomplishing all that.


What important running (or life) lesson can we learn from our dogs?
Pacing is important. JayJay will want to go all out and I have to push her back to pace her so I don't have to drag her home after 4 or 5 miles of running. It is the same with running you have to pace yourself so you can always finish strong.

Adriana, I am going have to check out the DFW lab reuse 5k! Thanks for sharing your pup and your story. You can follow Adriana and JayJay below:
