Running with the Dogs

I posted a few weeks ago about how I was having trouble making myself run in the cold. Well, I mentioned that having two crazy dogs is good motivation to get out of the house. 

My dogs are, in fact, the reason I learned to love running. After graduate school, I started teaching full-time so there were plenty of days when I only had 30 minutes to spend on myself or the dogs. I quickly learned that if I ran with the dogs, I could check off two to-dos with one run.

I also run with my dogs because as miserable as I might feel, the dogs are always so excited I can't help but be happy.

We are blessed to live in a part of the country where there are a lot of experimental forests with no leash laws. Layla and Finley are equally happy running on their leashes and as worn out as the end of the run as I am.
