Humane Society K-9 Fun Run

Sunday, March 28, 2010

Before the run

The starting line. We weren't scheduled to do the competitive run. We signed up for the run/walk that followed.

Sophie had other ideas. About 15 seconds after the start of the competitive run, I found myself flying behind Sophie, following the pack. Sophie zig-zagged the entire mile, running twice the distance. She greeted every photographer along the way.

Sitting down for a brief rest after a job well done. Our time for 1 mile: 10:22, and that includes the 15 seconds we spent at the start before Sophie decided we had to get going.

Sophie has requested a harness lead so that she can run with me more often.

    Yup, human, humane - not always the same thing! I was having so much trouble uploading the pics I didn't use spell check - not that it would have caught it!
    No doubt about it, I got yanked. But since the tracker doesn't give me credit for the calories expended keeping her under control prior to the run, I'm going to claim them all!

    Oh how cute!!! By the way I like the title "Human Society" I image you meant Humane Society but it came out cute that way. It looks like it was an amazing event and I'm glad you and Sophie had an awesome fun time and you had a great time on your timer as well!!!

    Don't tell the SP fitness tracker this story - it will cut your calorie consumption in half and allot them to Sophie, since she pulled emoticon

    Seriously, it looks like you both had a wonderful time; Sophie sure is cute - and social too!

    That's great and I had to chuckle. Who was walking/running whom? LOL

    My dogs, being little, aren't much into running other than playing around. They're sprinters. So I have to run alone.

    Great job!
