Furry Friday Feature: Dallas Edition

Hi, friends! Happy Friday! Welcome to the latest edition of Furry Friday Feature, a monthly post when I introduce you to a four-legged runner and their favorite running human.

Running with dogs

Am I allowed to have a favorite reader? Or are readers like kids and I have to pretend I like them all equally? Don't worry Mom, I won't tell the others. If I get a favorite reader (or at least top 5) I choose Jessie from Welsh Poco a Poco. She is a Dallas runner who is super speedy, adorable and has the cutest dog who runs. Jessie won my giveaway for the Flavor Run in Fort Worth and we ran it together. Together. i.e. she finished way faster than me.

Hi, Jessie. Tell us a little bit about your favorite running partner.

Brooklyn is a two-year-old Weimaraner. We brought her home at eight weeks, and we selected her breed for its athleticism and great disposition. She is a "velcro dog," meaning she always wants to be in on the action! She especially loves running and hiking, and she has the half marathon distance three times with me!

Brooklyn! That face!

Where are your favorite places to run with your pooch?

We love running at White Rock Lake in Dallas! Since we're Florida grown, we love being near the water!

Gorgeous! (nice shirt!)

Have you ever raced with your dog? 

Brooklyn has never entered a race with me, but she always helps me train and then greets me at the finish line with lots of puppy kisses!

Tell us about a running moment that made you proud.

I ran the Dallas Rock n Roll half marathon with Deena Kastor's pace group. It was such a privilege running with my favorite elite athlete! Deena was cheerful and encouraging, and she helped me set a new PR!

What important running (or life) lesson can we learn from our dogs?

Since I'm a full-time graduate student, time is a hot commodity. Brooklyn reminds me that it is a blessing and a gift to take time out of the routine and get outside and run! She lives up to the Brooks slogan: Run Happy! She is especially known for her goofy faces, which are often captured on camera!



Thanks Jessie for sharing Brooklyn with us! I hope to see you again soon at a local race.
If you love cute puppy faces and running, I highly suggested you check out Jessie's blog and follow her on Instagram.
