Instagram of the Week - Our first run
/ Friday, June 29, 2012
When Ginger came into our lives, I begged Paul to let her run with me. I just knew we would be great workout buddies. Energetic puppy + marathon runner - what could go wrong? But, Paul insisted that we wait until she was a little older since she was still adjusting from her prior life in the kennel. I mean, what if she came loose and I lost her. I would feel horrible.
Yesterday, it was finally our time. Ginger and I had our first run together & it was perfect. She stayed by my side the whole time and ignored other dogs that barked at us as we passed. If I stopped, she would sit beside me and wait. If I slowed down or sped up, she kept my pace with no complaint. Not to be biased or anything, but I have the best puppy ever! And, I have the picture to prove it!
I hope to run with her at least twice a week - increasing the distance each time. We started off with a 1 1/2 mile run and she did great. I am hoping to get her up to 5 miles eventually. Wish us luck!
