I'm cheap, and I rarely sign up for races-why pay $25-$30 to run 3.1 miles? (Like I said, cheap) Alli thought this would be fun and I am so glad she suggested we sign up. The puppies got these cute little bandanas to wear, and Alli registered to run with Ninja and I ran with Oscar. I have a double leash where I can run with both of them but their combined pulling power is too much on 1 leash. Ninja was READY to run:
The race had a great turnout, they doubled last year's numbers. Here's me and Alli + Oscar and Ninja taking off:
It was HOT you guys, and I was coming off a 2-day migraine and I was worried that the heat was too much for my dogs. Per my usual, I was just being neurotic and they did just fine, though they were tired after the race.
The running puppies got free puppy frozen yogurt, which was VERY popular:
Oscar and Ninja got to meet lots of other dogs, eat 2 frozen yogurts a piece, go for a run and get loved on by the other runners, and Alli and I had a blast. This race is definitely on my calendar from here on out!
Have you done any fun races lately?
