Xena and I headed over to the trail for a run this morning. The first mile was a little clumsy but she got the hang of what we were there for very quickly. I’m pretty sure there was a huge smile on my face the entire time as well.
The time was flying by and pretty soon we’d already run 2.5 miles. I wanted to take it easy with her since it was her first run so we turned around at this point. Not bad for a sweet dog who has spent most of her life in a kennel. Of course, a temporary home at Better Days Animal League is certainly better than her original fate from the breeder/owner who was going to drown her and her sister when he could not get rid of them as puppies.
Five miles complete.
She was happy.
I was happy.
Now, she just needs a home and someone who can take her for lots of regular runs (or walks!).Till the next run…
Want to join?
I think this is such a great idea!! So glad you get a chance to do this and I’m sure the dogs are more than happy to get out. What pace are you running with dogs? 5 miles on her first run is awesome!
Pretty much whatever pace they want to go…if I can keep up with it. Luckily, she was pretty easy so we were 9-10 minute miles depending on distractions. 🙂
That is awesome! What a great way to get your miles in!!
