This is a snippet of an article in the April edition of Runner’s World magazine, but it hit very close to home for me:
What Dogs Teach You About Running:
1) Keep your nose open to possibilities. If you get an intriguing whiff – or view – stop and take it in, because it might not be there tomorrow.
2)There is never a bad time to run
3) Running is best done in packs, or at least in pairs.
4) There mere sight of a pair of running shoes should make your tail wag.
5) When you get too hot, let your tongue hang out a big.
6) Squatting by the path is acceptable.
7) A leash – whether it’s real or a virtual I-can’t-do-this virtual one – will only hold you back.
8 ) The best recovery from a run is a nap in the sun.
