This week the pack and I set out to do a 14.25 mile run on a tough challenging course in Port Jefferson, Long Island. Yes there were hills to be seen……not to mention some great scenery along the way.
Above is the map of our run…..as you can see every step was run for a great cause, a shelter dog at Kent Animal Shelter! Hopefully with all our training Kent will get a nice check from our walks, there are other walkers/ and runners doing the same thing and every I think it’s month a check is cut to all the shelters people and their dogs walk, run or ride for !!
This course is to be used for the First Annual Port Jefferson Run to the Brewery…..where the dog runner will be volunteering on Sunday. (I think my dogs deserve some medals for completing the course- plus more- if there are extra on Sunday that is! You can find the medal on Instagram @runglirc! It’s a pretty cool medal too!! They deserve it, and honestly so do I! But oh my look at that view, once the runners get to the bottom right next to the water here, they come back up the hill after the turnaround! But it challenges the body! Thankfully I had my three dogs pulling me up the hill!
Oh along the way, our running friend Rick Secor had marked the course on Monday and left a nice little message for all the runners to keep motivated with……check it out, it made Scout smile!
OK, until tomorrow, have a happy and healthy tail waggin day,
the dog runner and her pack!
