The Best Running Partner . . .

The best running partner is a furry one!

Both of the humans were adequately worked out today & there is now an ongoing joke that we need to find a marathon that allows dogs so that a BQ might be possible. 😉

Earlier in the day – Cinder & Mick worked on running in semi-tandem. Outside of Cinder trying to switch sides a couple of times everything went better than expected.

8 miles with an 8:10 min / mi average pace . . . in the rain. 🐾 ❤ 🐾

Meanwhile, Toby was at home pouting with his other human.

So after a long day of reporting & conference calls it was time for their other human to log a few miles.

Now there was some discussion about taking it easy . . . but then they completely killed that plan by running around like absolute crazies. So then as a pack we logged 6 miles of 1:1 intervals AND took a brief break at the dog park to run around in the dark wearing their Noxgear Lighthound vests. [Check out their video on the General Videos page.]

Now you would think that all three pups would be a little tired & winding down.

NOPE. :/

Toys. Zoomies. Bone play. *sigh*

Endurance is a PITA.

Kettle Moraine – Nordic Trail System

Today we (the humans) wanted to get out & enjoy the beautiful Wisconsin weather & get some training miles in.

Toby, Cinder, & Mick had the chance to run, work on whistle recall, & just take in the sights & sounds of the trail.

Here are some of the pics from the adventure.

If you are ever in the Southeastern Wisconsin – check out Kettle Moraine State Forest.

Nordic Trail System

NOTE: Do bring tick / mosquito protection – the ticks were out in full force.

RRRs (Run – Rest – Repeat)

Today the pups ran one of their humans at an 8:10 average for 7 miles.

  • Toby – 2 miles
  • Mick – 2.5 miles
  • Cinder – 2.5 miles

You know that they love to join in on the runs when the sight of running clothes or shoes causes pacing to & from the door, excited yipping, & tapping feet.

All of this commotion always has the same results directly after . . . nap time! Just in time for my conference calls. 🙂

New Noxgear

I think that the pups are enjoying getting visits from the UPS guy as much as I am now.

Today’s delivery . . . new Noxgear for Mick!

We officially have Lighthounds for each pup!

  • Toby = Blue
  • Cinder = Pink
  • Mick = Red

Now I feel like I have a pack ready for a Tron remake!
