IT'S DOG WEEK! Furry Feature: Meet Meranda and Baylee

Welcome to day five of the Running with Ollie DOG WEEK. What is dog week, you ask? Well it is sort of like shark week, except cuter, furrier, and way less deadly. Sounds like fun, right? We are in full swing into dog week now! If you missed any posts, we've been sharing furry features every day since Friday! Today, I'd like you to meet Meranda and Baylee from Fairytales and Fitness.

When I am on vacation, every day is Friday!

Hi, Meranda. Tell us a little bit about your favorite running partner.
She is a Yellow Labrador named Baylee. She is seven. Like me, she started "running" later in life!

Where is your favorite place to run with your pooch?
A place called Island Park. It's beautiful and surround by the river on all sides. Sometimes it's a challenge to keep her from running in the river ( the Labrador in her is always attracted to water).

Have you ever raced with your dog? 
I have not. She doesn't exactly run in a straight line and I fear she would be a hazard to other runners...haha

Tell us about a running moment that made you proud.
The day I just decided that I was going to run a 10K. I had never ran that distance before. When I got to the trail it started to rain, but I ran all 6.2 miles with out stopping and thought I made a pretty good time. I was so proud that I ran that far in one shot. That weekend I signed up for my first official 10K race because I needed a time to submit for corral placement for a half marathon.
Aren't they just the cutest?
What important running (or life) lesson can we learn from our dogs?
It's not all about being fast. Some times we have to stop along the course and "sniff" the flowers!

Do you want to tell us anything else about you or running with your dog?
When I run with my dog I leave my music at home. I admit I talk to my dog on our runs! She's great company!

Thanks Meranda! All you need to do now is to teach Baylee how to bike and she can be a TRI-DOG!

  1. Aww, thank you for featuring us! I hope you are having a fabulous time on vacation!

    1. Baylee is adorable, and looks like she really enjoys those runs! Especially loving her costume photo with a medal. Wish we could get her together with Magnus for a pup-friendly race. :) Loved reading this. ~DB
