Hi, Heather. Tell us a little bit about your favorite running partners.
Belle is a 5 years old Miniature Pinscher beagle mix. Willow is a 9 months old German Short hair Retriever.
Where is your favorite place to run with your pooch?
We love to run on the back roads.
Have you ever raced with your dog?
Not yet, but we are excited to be training for a 10k in April.
Tell us about a running moment that made you proud.
I am proud of Belle for running 12 miles with me. This is impressive because she only weighs 20 lbs and has sticks for legs.
What running (or life) lesson can we learn from our dogs?
Running with my dogs is the best thing I ever did! They are more balanced energy-wise and they motivate me more than I ever thought they could. I’m not just that crazy runner girl, ow I’m the crazy runner girl with two dogs!
Do you want to tell us anything else about you or running with your dog?
Everyone should exercise with their dog on a regular basis. It builds a bond and helps to lessen behavior problems.
Do you want to be featured on this blog with your dog? Fill out this form to be considered. For now, this is a monthly post (12 times a year) but with enough new interest, I am considering expanding it to once a week (52 times a year) so there is plenty of opportunity to get in your feature submission. We'd love to hear from you!
