A couple of weeks ago, after training, Tristan, Ben and I set off to do the Virtual Doo Good 5k together. We chose the bike path near our house and started right before the sun was starting to set.
I was really excited to do this race series with my dog because he is getting older and I am not sure how much longer he’ll be able to run with me. When he was younger, we used to run together a lot. As I started training for longer and longer distances, I didn’t feel comfortable taking him with me, but we would still run the shorter runs and do hikes together.
It had been a while since we did a lot of running together, so when I got the word I was signed up for the Virtual Scooby Do Run Series, we started building his miles back up starting with one mile.
He did awesome through all the training runs and was ready for the full 3.1 miles come race day! We had no time goals, and just wanted to get through the whole race without stopping!
Minus one stop for a poop break, we reached our goal and each earned some great swag!
Next up, we’ve got the Scoobtober 5k at the end of October!
