Tuesday Tails Furry Feature: I am Teacher Fit

Welcome to the latest edition of Tuesday Tails Furry Feature, when each week I share the cutest four-legged runners on the internet.

This week I'm thrilled to introduce you to Pippa and her human, Jessica from I am Teacher Fit from Midland TX.



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

Pippa, my running buddy, is the sweetest six year old mutt. Truthfully, I'm not sure what her breed is, but I tell people she is a Pit Bull/Blue Heeler/Border Collie mix! As a six month old pup, she was a stray that a family friend came across. They thought of me and six years later we're still inseparable!

Where is your favorite place to run with your pooch?

My husband and I recently moved to a new city, so most of our runs are spent exploring our new surroundings.



Have you ever races with your dog?

I have never raced with Pippa, but I did bring her along on an Alzheimer's walk one year. She was so ecstatic to be around so many people that she spent her time weaving back and forth across the trail. I can just see her causing someone to trip over her leash in a 5K and I'm embarrassed already!

Tell us about a running moment that made you proud.

I've never deemed myself as fast, I always just want to finish a race strong. However, earlier this year I placed 3rd in my age group in a 5K and a few weeks later, placed 6th in a 10K!

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

Unconditional love! As cheesy as it may seem, this sweet pup came into my life at a time when I needed her most. Dogs make life a lot sweeter!



Do you want to tell us anything else about you or running with your dog?

We do so much more than just run together. She is a great yoga buddy as well! She always joins for belly scratches when I'm in savasana.



Any parting thoughts? Where can we follow you and your sweet pup?

I love running with Pippa, but sometimes the struggle is real! She gets easily distracted and sometimes running with her is hopeless. I have to keep my eyes peeled for squirrels to keep her from tearing my arms off trying to chase after them! Please come say hello at I Am Teacher Fit where I blog about health and fitness, everyday life, and of course--Pippa!
