As of one year ago, Scout and I have ran our marathon together to raise money for Kent Animal Shelter…..this year at this time we are planning to run the course again but on November 6th 2016, and this time we will be training with and running with Liberty and Sierra!!
We have a lot of training all around before we conquer the 26.2 mile course we have planned for November! We hope to share all our training, and how you can train for your next event and everything with you until then- whether its talking tips, training schedules, safety suggestions….or anything related to running our marathon…..in the meantime…..we have also have several smaller races that we are preparing for…..the first being the 5 mile Doggy Dash with Sierra (www.nyctri.com/doggydash) in NYC! then following that a few 5k’s that Liberty and Scout will run with Pam. Yes our training will be included in the marathon training…..we hope to virtually train with you for your next race and want to hear about your experiences as well. So please comment with your experiences below as often as you can!
We will be running our marathon not just for us but for all the animals at the Kent Animal Shelter in Calverton, NY (where we will be ending- yes, our finish line)……You can donate at crowdrise.com, just click here…Doggone Marathon
We are thinking of running in the American colors, or Army fatigues or PT uniform…..and carrying an American flag somehow…..oh wait, I’m hands free…..and small flags can be attached to each of my dogs……details will be worked out by November!!
We will be starting fairly early, to avoid any or all traffic along most of the course…..
So this is the first of many blogs about our training for our upcoming races and or runs…….
We hope you join us back here while we plan and train for our events leading up to the big Doggone Marathon!
Until next time,
have a happy and healthy tail waggin day,
Pam AKA the Dog Runner
