First Five

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.

Streching, post run. It's important! 🙂

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?

  1. 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!
