My New Running Partner!
Monday, July 18, 2011
Haven't heard from me in a while? No big surprise! I've been crazy busy and have been horrible with exercise/nutrition. I'm finally to the point of my summer vacation that I have nothing else on my agenda, so now is the perfect time to get back to it.
With that, comes the introduction of my goals and my new running partner. I'm planning on running the Rock 'N Roll 1/2 Marathon in October, so I'll need to get started on training. That will definitely help me get back to it. It might take some time, but I'll need to help my running partner build endurance, too. He's new to this whole running business, so it'll take some time getting used to it.
Here's a picture of my running partner:
That's right! Meet Barnum! He is such a cutie! He is 9 months old and is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. We went for our first test run today, and he did okay. He gets distracted pretty easily, though. I think that's a puppy thing, but I need to do some more research. Does anyone have any tips on running with dogs and/or training dogs to run? I'd appreciate any advice!
And just for fun, here's one more!
(While I'm thinking about it, expect some pics from my new home soon, too!)
